When I first decided to watch this movie, I did so knowing that it could end up being an Italian The Perks of Being a Wallflower. But this film is something entirely different, regardless of how similar some aspects might sound. It tells the story of three teenagers, all rejected from their peers and for different reasons. Blu, a confident, openly sexually active girl. Antonio, who regardless of being a brilliant basketball player is made fun of for being unintelligent. And Lorenzo, an eccentric and openly gay boy. He moves from Turin and into a town that is way to conservative and small for his ambitions.
Regardless of the dance scenes, eccentric clothes and the "cartoonish" edits, this film was quite realistic, and successful in capturing the troubles of teenagers without making it look overly "angsty" or melodramatic. Some of the soundtracks were a bit off, and some scenes could have been avoided completely, but overall a great film. I have no idea why Un Bacio (One kiss) hasn't boomed in the LGBT community yet. It definitely should get more attention.
