Best of youth (La meglio gioventù) - Alessio Boni, Luigi Lo Cascio, Adriana Asti, Marco Tullio Giodarana

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

The possibilities were endless...

Nicola (Luigi Lo Cascio) and Matteo Carati (Alessio Boni) are brothers who effectively go their separate ways as teenagers. Whilst Nicola becomes a psychiatrist with a partner and a child, Matteo abandons his academic work, having an increasingly solitary existence as a police officer. Not only are the brothers' careers different, but their political perspective radically diverges, only to bring them together at critical moments in their lives.
