| The first from 'Coffee and Cigarettes'
Roberto Benigni, over ten years before his great 'La Vita è Bella', sits down with Steven Wright to talk over coffee and cigarettes. In fact, their conversation is mainly about coffee and cigarettes.

Roberto is drinking his coffee (he drinks it like he has ten already) while waiting for Steven. When he appears they both light a cigarette have a lot of sugar in their coffee and start talking about it like they are just learning how to speak. After this a couple of things happen, they have to stand up for it, leading to the final moments that involve a dentist.

I liked this short film up to a certain point. If it would have played longer I guess it was going to be boring. The small things that happen are funny, but only in a "smile"-way. The final moments are quite good and they make sure you will leave this short film with a smile as well. Not great, but good enough.
