Liscio (The Ball) is the third film out of the four movies that I selected for the Italian Film Festival. It tells a story about a young boy called Raul, who thinks that he should make his mum happy by matchmaking her with his music teacher at school. Raul is getting sick of seeing her with different men, and he thought that she would be happy if she met somebody decent. He didn’t realise that she wanted something different to make her happy …

It’s a charming movie that deals with the simplistic way that children think and how everybody has different concept of contentment and happiness. It’s certainly something different compared to the first two sad movies that I watched. Hehehe.

I enjoyed it – so I’d give it: 3/5!

I've finally relented to the lures of blogging - and for those who care, well, I'm a self-confessed geek who's a wanderer at heart, who thinks and analyses too much, and who's trying hard to hold on to his 7-year old inner persona.
