"Luchetti deliberately set out to make a film that was not overtly political but rather about people caught up by the tide of the times. Handsomely shot and astutely cast..."

"[The film] provides a great insight into one of the most troubled and contradictory periods of Italian history..."
Los Angeles Times - 04/04/2008
"Aided by the solid direction of co-writer Luchetti, scripters Petraglia and Rulli seem to take special pleasure in the volatility of the brothers and their family members..."
Uncut - 05/01/2008 3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] Daniele Luchetti's warm and intimate directorial style and Germano's magnetic, tremendously modulated central performance."
Empire - 05/01/2008 4 stars out of 5 -- "[W]ith light comic moments and coming-of-age charm. With captivating performances from the two leads, this is well worth seeking out."

Description by Image Entertainment:
The violent political unrest of 1960s Italy brings simmering tensions between two feuding brothers to the boiling point in this critically acclaimed film. Eager to distance themselves from each other, Accio (Elio Germano, Do You Like Hitchock', Respiro: Grazia's Island) and older brother, Manrico (Riccardo Scamarcio, Romanzo Criminale, Three Steps Over Heaven), join opposing political parties but are tied together by their dysfunctional working-class family... and a beautiful girl named Francesca. As the turbulent decade comes to a close, the brothers slowly discover they're more alike than they thought, but that realization might come too late.
