My thoughts: This film really surprised me and made me think a lot. I wish there was a copy with English subtitles available out there, because it doesn't really feel like an Italian film, it's really well done and has a great message to give. I love that it's divided in two parts, as there are two stories which are completely apart and separated one from the other, but which are both about Italians going abroad for different reasons, and the way they are seen from foreigners. I love how this film puts all these stereotypes in relevance and makes you think about this little country in a different way, even if you belong there. As an Italian living abroad, this film really touched me and moved me :) The acting was surprisingly great as well, and the soundtrack was just perfect, with Negramaro's version of the beautiful Meraviglioso as a final touch.
