      Audience Member Roberto Bengini is my favorite Italian Actor a ball of energy and a smile that could light up the world and more, failed to keep me slightly in tune with this movie. Starting his career even before i was around, this movie should have be described as a silent flick. Not much material or a base to hold on anyone can pull out a camera, stumble around a school. Roberto is greater then great..But this movie did absolutely nothing for me. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Roberto è un eccellente insegnante d'asilo, amato dalle colleghe e dai bimbi, ma non è visto di buon occhio dai genitori che non capiscono i suoi rapporti con i figli. Perciò Roberto un giorno fa amicizia con un bambino affetto da disturbi psichici. [it.wikipedia.org] Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member I love this film. I would love to have it on DVD with English subtitles at least. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Confusing plot and it was really hard to get into. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Interesting subject, a bit too slow though. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member It's all about the fashion!
