| An insight in the Italian factory workers marginal life, and a picture about how growing up sure is complicated.
In the industrial area around Piombino, a few miles away from one of the jewels of the Mediterranean Sea (Elba island), smoking, dark, rusted foundries host a world where humanity has its own rules and expectations. In this context, the movie shows the hard life permeating the difficult relationships that set up in family, friendship and love, with a particular look into the hard task of growing up. The movie is raw, direct, and has some interesting moments, and the general dramatic development is well defined, despite its loose appearance. Perhaps a little excess of indulgence to voyeurism is the only major flaw of this otherwise interesting movie. Above everything, the wonderful soundtrack, including tracks from Comaneci and Amycanbe, which have the rare gift of changing everything they touch into gold.
