The attentive and convincing directing skills of Ulisse Lendaro succeed in narrating the coming of age story of two young girls, with no excessive frills and with a good amount of cynicism and elegance. Cosimo Calamini's excellent script frames the social and educational context of the two female protagonists and the seamless acting of Marina Occhionero and Paola Calliari makes the honest piece of work a rarity for Italian cinema.
