That's not a crime flick which I talk about, but rather a good, powerful drama speaking of young punks, hoodlums, in search of easy money and life. You have already have seen hundreds of films on this subject but this one is excellent, pulled by outstanding performances. Not for all audiences, very dark and pessimistic, as was another Italian film DOGMAN that I also commented in July.

Mirko and Manolo are best friends and live in the suburbs of Rome. They both live in poor conditions with their single parents, are still in school and struggle with occasional odd jobs to make ends meet. Together they share dreams of women, of sex and money, of a better life to come. After killing a man in a hit-and-run one night, they get involved with the local mafia and their lives change dramatically. Soon they find themselves doing the dirty work for their new bosses and have fresh blood on their hands. But lured by the dreams of easy money and illusions of a thriving career, they fail to realize the consequences of their choice. Life in the underworld becomes exceedingly tough and Mirko and Manolo soon disconnect from family and former friends as they engage on a download spiral, a pathway towards darkness.
