Paolo Genovese’s latest box-office hit “Immaturi” [Eng. Title: Immature] is a breezy feel-good comedy about a group of friends getting together after twenty years. The premise is however interesting – the batch they belonged to have to re-sit an examination from twenty years ago – the board had just managed to audit the results and discovered some irregularities in the grading. This gives them the perfect excuse to reconnect with the once close-knit group – they had hitherto dispersed, taking up different vocations. As they get together to cram Greek philosophy, the film gives a fly-past of each of the main characters’ lives, their family, and unresolved issues from the past. Needless to say, all ends well.

It is a typical mainstream film, with beautiful people trying to deal with their tiny little discomforts. While occasionally witty and intelligent, the characters are cliché, as are the dialogues and screenplay predictable. Great cinematography, art direction, popular music, and a simple story – easy viewing at its best, I guess!

There are also a couple of brief nude scenes in the film – the reason for this post.
