Go rent "Best of Youth"

If you haven't heard of this Italian miniseries already, let me be the first to tell you that you must get the Best of Youth DVDs and watch them immediately. Preferably on a long Sunday afternoon with a bottle of wine. And chocolate.
Briefly, the series follows the lives of two Italian brothers as they mature from rowdy students in the 60s to grey-haired family guys in the 00s. The story delivers scene after scene of brilliant comedy, romance, drama, and great storytelling. There are a few scenes that are so touching and poignant it hurts.
The two discs are six hours altogether, though honestly I wanted more at the end. Definitely time well spent. Posted by todd at September 4, 2006 06:59 AM
