Just can't resist these both charming men
6 June 2019 | by nichochungSee all my reviews

It's a great film for entertaining, this thinking comes to mind in the first 20 mins, and then the story evolves to a lonely boy inside the gifted but rebellious football star. you can't use one sentence to tell how the main role is, what personality he is. I love to see a "Character", here has two. Andrea Carpenzano is really Charming charming charming! A boyfriend material.
