Storyline

This documentary-style film takes place in Bologna, Italy. The Radio Alice program began on February 9, 1976. The radio station used an ex-military transmitter. They were mao-dadaists. The government wanted to have early elections. THere were many political problems. The main characters needed jobs, so they got an illegal job of digging a tunnel beneath buildings. They eventually got caught when one of the boys ran out of the tunnel and a cop saw him. They were almost done digging the tunnel. Anyone could come in and talk about whatever they wanted on Radio Alice. The creators did not want the channel to be affiliated with politics or to play mainstream music. They wanted to let creativity flow. The feminists took their own time slot on Radio Alice. During a protest, the police killed a fellow college student. The students set everything on fire. The protesters believed that they had to work too much. The carabinieri (Italian military police) shut down the station on March 12, 1977. ...

Divertente: Amusing.
4 October 2004 | by andrea-boiSee all my reviews

Italy. The 70's. Along with the birth of a free Radio in Bologna (Radio Alice) and the political developments of the radical Italian left, two young men get in touch with a new consciousness which is spreading among the youth. Getting by daily and refusal of given destiny is their way of life, while tragedies surround them. (During a rally a student is shot to death in front of them (real story), a friend of them is sent to prison for the beating up of a moneylender). Directed with a subtle touch, no rhetoric, no stereotype. There's no judgment, the only aim is just to tell a story. The Italian Seventies are righteously described without taboo. Just watch it and have a two-hours-real-good-time!
