Director: Luciano Ligabue
Cast: Stefano Pesce, Massimo Bellinzoni, Pierfrancesco Favino and Stefano Venturi

The film is about four male friends from Correggo who dropped their families and commitments to spend a weekend in Rmn, thereby meeting the girls whom they had met 20 years ago ... to do what they have missed 20 years ago ...

What I like ...
-- I like the initial 5 to 10 minutes of the film, where they mock at the society about rating everything ... from the day we are born to the day we get old ... from zero to ten ...
-- I also like the last half of the film, where it becomes more thought provoking and intense ...
-- In the beginning, there is also a quote about "the blues" being everything, but also being short ... because life is short ...
-- Predictably, there is one particularly nice song in the film ...

What could be better ...
-- After the initial 10 minutes or so, I thought I have made a mistake to watch a "spring break" (albeit in Italy) film ... fortunately, as the film progresses, it becomes more thought provoking ...

Conclusion:
-- I find it watchable.
