    Set in Italy in the 60s and 70s, two brothers fight over love and political ideas. The film loses flair as the film progresses and the filmmaker refuses to pick a predominant theme. The initial concept itself is good and original.

    Another fabulous film out of Italy that is a picture of the politics of the era when extreme points of view were advocated by those who would seek to deal with plodding governments. In this case, it is personal with different members of the family gravitating to the left and right. It sparkles.

    This was an interesting film. Aspects of it were very black and white, which is ridiculous for a political film. Elio Germano was very good, both loveable and intensely dislikeable at the same time. He gave a captivating performance. His brother, Scamarcio, was the face that didn't have much going on behind it. A good film, I watched it without considering pressing pause or stop. Just play.

    Elio Germano is one of the best young italian actors of the moment, he's brillant! Scamarcio is more like a sex symbol to the italian teenagers, but in this movie he's good too.

    Un film italiano forse un po' sopravvalutato. Un ottimo Elio Germano.

    Really good film, liked the general premise but would have preferred a different ending.
