Best Italian TV show ever
"I ragazzi della terza C" was an Italian underrated TV show, that was quite popular in the mid 80's, but then was classified as "TV show for kids".
Nothing could be more wrong. IRDTC had a lot of philosophical, human and artistic messages. The stories of Bruno Sacchi, Chicco, Sharon, etc. represented the interior teenage angst like no other show did before.
The strength of this show was talking about some serious matters without being boring: you can find suicide, drugs, questions about the existence of man and life, ethical problems: summing up, these guys faced all life troubles like we all do everyday, but with the artistic and often experimental touch of director Claudio Risi, this show achieves an high poetic level.
This shows demonstrates that also the average Joe tv watcher could understand and enjoy characters, dialogues, stories which are on an unbelievable high cultural level.
I would like also to mention two technical aspects: the great acting level, the cast was actually full of talented young actors and the incredible rhythm (speed) of the scenes (difficult to follow sometimes).
Eventually I would like to suggest to everybody this masterpiece of Italian fiction.
