Popular Italian rock star Luciano Ligabue made his directorial debut with this Italian drama based on Fuori e dentro il borgo, his collection of autobiographical short stories about growing up in small-town Italy of the '70s. DJ Bruno reflects on the past, a small circle of friends, and the hopes of their generation. At the group's core is Freccia, a heroin user until Marzia steps in to help him kick the habit. As expected, Iena marries and settles down, while unhappy Boris is a victim of his own cynicism, and Tito is driven to violence by his dysfunctional family. An older bartender listens to the group's woes and dreams. Along with a guitar score and a closing-credits song by Ligabue, tunes of the time include ones by Iggy Pop, Roxy Music, and David Bowie. Shown at the 1998 Venice Film Festival.
