This lively and engaging romantic comedy-drama, whose ensemble structure is reminiscent of THE BIG

CHILL and THE LAST KISS, was a big box-office hit in Italy, where the esame di maturit (high-school

matriculation exam) is a major rite-of-passage. A group of six former school friends (including a chef, a

priest, a real estate agent, a radio host, and a recovering sex addict) are thrown together again twenty years

later when they receive word that their exam results have been annulled by a technicality and they have

to take it over again! When they buckle down to study together, they discover that their post-school lives

hardly deserve high marks, but this mishap might provide a chance for them to graduate into true maturity.

In Italian with English subtitles. 35mm print courtesy of Gianluca Bertogna. (MR)
