Ernesto (Federico Russo) is a teenager who wanders, in search of himself, through the streets of Rome. Chapter after chapter, time passes and people just disappear but he continues to live impromptu relationships, causing pain to himself and to others. Taking refuge in his happy moments and in political ideologies, he believes he can save his soul from suffering although life will force him to grow and move forward.
It’s the story of teenager Ernesto (FREDERICO RUSSO) who wanders through the streets of Rome in search of ‘himself’. Along the way he indulgently finds many potential friends/lovers to see if they are what he is looking for. Most of the encounters end in hurt for both parties, but somehow that doesn’t stop Ernesto keep on with his journey.
The filmmakers intended their film to be about juvenile bewilderment and to that end, they succeeded. However, along the way, they also managed to bewilder us which may have been acceptable if the main character was more engaging and dare we say, even likable.
