Its quite impressive to see the different stages of a family, how it builds up and changes within itself. The story is marvelous, quite dramatic, although sometimes resembling a bit too much of a soap opera. Nevertheless, you'll sit up watching its 6 hours, and end up asking for a continuation.

A very good movie

Since I kept hearing some really good things about this flick, I was quite eager to check it out. To be honest, I was slightly worried to watch a movie which had a whopping 6 hours running time. Well, eventually, I was surprised by how easy it was to watch the whole thing and, if you are interested to watch this flick, I would advise to watch both parts back to back or, at least, during one day.

A historical saga set in Italy spanning from 1966 to 2003. “The Best of Youth” chronicles the life of an Italian family, the Caratis, but focuses primarily on two brothers, Matteo and Nicola, documenting their journey from the prime of their wild youth in the mid-1960s counter-culture, to parenthood and retirement in the early 2000s. The film aims to show the interaction of the personal and the political, the ways in which small events may become turning points in the important choices made by individuals

My favorite Italian movies (23 movies items)

"Original Title: 'La meglio gioventù' Directed by: Marco Tullio Giordana Plot: An Italian epic that follows the lives of two brothers, from the 1960s to the 2000s. Note: I have to admit that the beginning was rather awkward but, fairly quickly, the damned thing became a massive epic during which you follow 2 brothers through 3 decades. Obviously, Marco Tullio Giordana had plenty of time to deliver some completely fully formed characters and I also believe that this movie is one of the greates"
