April 24, 1993: the last program of Radio Arrow is on the air. Over the microphone, Bruno tells the story of the radio station which is also the story of a group of friends. In the beginning the radio was called Radio Raptus but its name was changed into Radio Arrow after the body of Ivan Benassi, known as the arrow, was found half-immersed, head down, in a ditch. Jena, Boris and Tito are the friends with whom Arrow and Bruno spend most of their time. They consider the bar Laika as their own home and it's there that Adolfo, the barman, talks to them about privately-owned radio stations for the first time. All of them, individually, try to find their way to grow up or to remain forever young, through long days spent in the bar, love stories, small-town practical jokes and dramatic events.Written by
A fascinating insight in the '70s, revolving around music, friendship, and bittersweet nostalgia
I would reccomend this film to everyone. Not only to the fans of the rocker Luciano Ligabue, but to all film-buffs. Because it's sincere, moving, funny and true. Because Ligabue is a born storyteller and a film lover, and every frame of his film is made with love and care. Because his characters are loved and ask to be loved. Because most of the Italian debut films are lousy and this one, done by an outsider, is a real joy to watch and to listen at. Because Stefano Accorsi is gorgeous and reminds me of Andrea Pazienza, who was, like Freccia, beautiful and talented and good and lost his life because of the heroin, that Ligabue shows as it is, unglamorous and ugly, without indulging in easy moralisms. Because it's a film that speaks to our heart, our ears, our souls. And because I lived the experience of the FM radios and it was exactly like that. Thanks, Luciano!
