Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In this comedy centered around competitive pool sharks, Franceso Nuti (also co-writer) is the talented pool player Francesco who after beating the inimitable "Scuro" (Marcello Lotti, a three-time pool champion) gets conned into playing for money -- and then everything starts going downhill. The clear-headed Chiara (Giuliana De Sio) comes to Francesco's rescue, and in the meantime, some impressive pool shots entertain even the uninitiated with their wizardry. Fans of the game would appreciate the dexterity and inventiveness of the featured shots.
