THE THOUGHT THAT COUNTS

independent, new, rebellious

- synopsis -

Giovanni and Michele are university students looking for a sublet roommate. Instead of studying for his Medicine exams, Giovanni is devoting all his efforts to the rehearsal of his student play titled “Freud’s Laundrette”, while Michele is busy going to parties and changing girlfriends.

Hindered by Giovanni’s resistance, their roommate search efforts apparently lead nowhere – until, one day, Asia shows up at their door.

 

In the midst of postponed exams, ambitious discussions, peaks of nostalgia, slack generational conflicts and perhaps too many coffees, Giovanni, Asia and Michele stumble towards an uncertain future in the lines of their generation in eternal crisis, longing for an outburst which seems to invariably fade into irony.
