From the start this film is paced really well and draws you straight in to the lives of Accio, his brother Manrico and their family in 1960s Italy. The casting is superb and the direction also - I learned from the interview with Luchetti (included on the disc) that many of the scenes were filmed with little or no rehearsal and this contributes, I think, to the spontaneity of the action - especially the fight sequences. Some very moving scenes as the film takes us into the 1970s and Accio comes of age...
There is a good deal of humour as well as angst, and the soundtrack is memorable although used very sparingly throughout.
I watched this twice in a week and would thoroughly recommend it.
