"A Little Lust" ("Né Giulietta né Romeo") Parents!! Amos Lassen -years-old Rocco Bordin's (Andrea Amato) parents are separated and he lives with his mother (Veronica Pivetti) and his extravagant grandmother (Pia Engleberth). However, his relationship with his self-centered and distant father (Corrado Invernizzi) is not good. Everything changes when Rocco falls in love with another guy and decides to come out. Because he is so disappointed by the reaction of the parents that he runs away from home. He really came out because of a bullying incident at school when his "friends" caught wind of what was going on with Rocco. Rocco has two aims in life-one was to get laid and the other is to see his favorite pop star in concert with his best friends, sassy and tomboyish Maria (Carolina Pavone) and nerdy and quiet Mauri (Francesca De Miranda). Because of his parents' reactions to his homosexuality Rocco steals the family car and runs away with two friends who have stood by him. He heads for a Maria and Mauri concert with his neurotic mother and eccentric grandma following him. This is a very funny coming out story and is also life affirming. Yet even with all of the humor, this is a very important film that addresses homosexuality in our youth culture. The Bordin family becomes a metaphor for the intolerance in society.
is an important film because it addresses, no climax and exaggeration or hypocritical censorship, the theme homosexuality youth. The film also addresses sex, masturbation, desire and the "first time" experiences. We see the initial shock of a middle class family struggling with an uncomfortable truth that is a reality. The film starts off as a regular family drama that becomes a wild comedy dealing with the agony of coming out and teen obsessions. The ensemble cast is quite good and the film holds our interest throughout.
