Italian family drama disappointment.
4 October 2012 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

Unconvincing attempt to put on screen a fantasy version of growing up in Naples in the seventies - flares, David Bowie, "These Boots Are Made for Walking", Zorba Dancing and Women's Movement love-ins.

Mum Golino finds dad Zingaretti (at the advantage of not being displayed in awful wigs like the rest of his family) cheating and ends up in the hands of the shrink who tells her to get an ice cream.

Meanwhile her young son is being visited by the apparition of the run over cousin in a Superman costume.

Despite the classy participants, bright colours and OK use of locations are the best elements.
