Gli anni più belli
134 minutes, Color
Internationally acclaimed director Gabriele Muccino's filmmaking prowess is confirmed in this exhilarating saga of friendship. The Best Years explores the cycle of life and relationships spanning more than 40 years against the backdrop of contemporary Italian history seen through the eyes of three childhood friends and the girl they all fall in love with at one point in their lives. Giulio, Paolo, Riccardo, and Gemma form a strong bond as teenagers, only to go their separate ways in early adulthood. They reconnect later on, until passion and betrayal threaten to tear them apart forever. Muccino's inspired portrait of a generation pauses briefly to nod at pivotal world events, including the fall of the Berlin Wall and the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers. With a star director, a powerful ensemble cast, unforgettable scenes, and a compelling story, The Best Years will leave you craving more Italian cinema.—Various sources
