Watched a really charming film last night. "Sotto il sole di Riccione" (Under the Sun of Riccione)
Italian, has English subs, and my perfect film in a number of ways: it has a stunning romantic 90s-esque electro soundtrack from my favourite group, TheGiornalisti. Fantastic performances. Really well-drawn characters. The wit is sharp and laugh-out-loud funny.
It's just that I wouldn't normally choose to watch a romance comedy about a group of young twenty-somethings finding love in Italy's equivalent of Southend.
But it's so nicely done, so funny and so perfectly complete. Harmless and really enjoyable fun.
8 out of 10.
