a delightful and charming social comment
maniabee31 January 2013
Italian comedies always make me laugh. This one was no exception. The plot was simple but the film concentrated more on the people and social stereotypes. The characters were next-door people, very well interpreted by the actors. I find very interesting the subject of questioning whether escorting is something that women should be ashamed of under any circumstances. The movie picks the side that it can be excusable and maybe one of the few ways to quickly make good money. I liked the fact that thought-provoking is subtle and light. Usually films try too hard to create debate on social matters with melodrama but I like the comedy way. In the film it is also shown how an internet café is a hanging-out spot in a neighbourhood of poor immigrants and how the owner offers free services although being on the verge of closing the place down. All in all, the meaning that is gotten across is that we should not judge with our eyes fixed on a list of good and bad deeds, but also lay a bit our eyes on the context.

Funny, entertaining, feel good movie

I saw this movie last week in the theater and found it very entertaining. It's a light comedy with many funny moments and remarks. I love Italian cinema but have the impression that Italian movies are a bit slow paced. That was not the case with this movie. I'm aware that it might be subjective, but it has been a while since I have laughed as much watching a movie. I would describe it as a modern existentialist comedy with simple plot and funny characters, which at the same time brings light to some moral and cultural issues in a very profound way. Acting is great with some exceptions and I have to admit that I find Paola Cortellesi very sexy. If you like to spend 90 minutes feeling good and laughing, I would highly recommend this movie.
