Fear of growing up. Fear of growing up when you are thirty, and fear of getting old when you’re fifty. The characters whose stories intertwine in the film all have this desperate, teen-age need. It’s the need to stay light, not to feel weighed down by obligations, conventions, that society and even age impose on us. There is the common desire to flee in everyone. Carlo and Adriano try different ways of fleeing from a family life that makes them feel blocked, immobile. Anna, the fifty year-old mother of Giulia, Carlo’s girlfriend, tries to escape from her age and a marriage that has made her unhappy. Paolo, Carlo’s restless friend, his father dying, a small family company where he fulfils his family duties and a girlfriend who has left him. So he and his two friends Adriano and Alberto, decide to get their lives moving again. In a physical sense. They leave. They are the only ones who accomplish that idea of fleeing, that from the beginning was common to nearly all the characters in the film.
