| Good film, much better book
Salvatores has been directing movies for more than twenty years, and most of them are very watchable with great ones every now and then. This title, although I enjoyed it a lot, is to me a bit of a hit and miss. The casting is good (the usual Abatantuono, Bisio, Bentivoglio etc.), the film flows quite alright and some of the points it makes are spot on. Yet years later I decided to read the book and I found out the story was just much better, and could have made a greater film, or even a short series, if budget wasn't a problem (in Italy often is). The comedic turn Salvatores decided to make doesn't convince me thoroughly, and although it is funny, it's not as good as other films he made (Mediterraneo, Marrakech Express). To all the Italian readers (because I don't know if it has been translated in any other languages) I can only advise to read Pino Cacucci's book, if you like travels and serious storytelling, it's the right book for you. Ah, and be careful because you'll become obsessed about going to Mexico!
