The First Day of Winter 2008
Il primo giorno d’inverno (original title)
1h 28min | Drama | 27 March 2009 (Italy)
Valerio is a lonely young boy who can’t get on with the others of the same age. He just observes without been seen and tries to compare himself to them, especially with two tough guys from his swimming course. One day Valerio sees something that will change him forever.
Good grief…what a thoroughly unpleasant film. What thoroughly unpleasant young men – especially the central character; a dull, dismal dullard.
Apart from it being completely composed of brown (i.e. the colour)…it’s so fatalistically boring.
Minimum dialogue and endless scenes of a clapped-out moped…Locatelli has a successfully developed a cure for insomnia – watch this – you’ll be sound asleep in seconds.
