‘Scialla’, directed by Francesco Bruni, is one of the simplest, funniest, perhaps even sweetest Italian movies of the decade. It mirrors the Italian youth’s apathy and conformism and is both joyfully chaotic and sadly pure. It features the story of a talented writer and teacher who privately tutors students as his passion for teaching has given way. Among the equally listless students, he tutors 15 year old Luca, ignorant, but lively and irreverent, who ends up being his child, the child he never knew he had. Next, it’s all about an unlikely living arrangement between the apathetic teacher and restless teenager. Great movie for all!
