Nice teenager comedy
14 May 2020 | by sharonrotaSee all my reviews

I put 8 because I loved it when I watched it around 18 and going through my final exams in high school. I love the references to the 80s, the movie is funny and there are some witty parts as well, really relatable if you know something about Italian culture and went through the final exams, the costumes and music are beautiful. Giorgio Faletti does an incredible job representing the evil liceo teacher. It's basically the only movie I can stand with Nicolas Vaporidis, but I think the movie would have been better with another actor, I don't like him at all, especially the way he seems to eat words while he speaks
