Video Notes:
Roberto, a shy student, meets Bruno, a forty-year-old exuberant, capricious man, who takes him for a drive through the Roman country. They will spend two days together, meet both Roberto's and Bruno's family. The time Roberto spends with Bruno is a hilarious, but sometimes emotionally merciless accelerated maturization process. While Bruno's easy going "l'usage du monde" and societal success attract Roberto's great admiration, he also slowly realizes Bruno's hollowness, superficiality and and unhappyness.
