    What do you guys think? I mean...it is not the usual teenage romance ...it explores the psyche of teenage girls of elitarian districts, pushed to escape a life full of rules.

    I can't tell from the trailer what it's about. But all teens push against the rules and expectations that surround them, it's part of coming of age and finding their own identity. Too many rules and expectations can and often does cause teens to push back so hard that they harm themselves, or others. Humans wanting to control other humans is an ongoing cultural problem all around the world.

    Sounds like a typical teenage drama where the main attraction are young models in their early 20's playing teenage girls in lingery and in sexually suggestive context. It seems a bit tacky and voyeuristic in my opinion.

    No...it is based on a true story.
    It is much more a psychological drama, where teenage girls and some adult women are the main protagonists...
    But it explains how in Italy, a Mediterranean culture, where woman is supposed to be submissive, she expresses her own sexual freedom in a turbulent way.

    Btw...apparently some American feminists criticized the show...
    I wonder why....
    I mean...here in Italy woman is much more disinhibited than in the US...there is no Victorian compromise, and people live their lives aboveboard.

    "lingery"? Does that mean that they hang around a lot?

    Yes, I wonder why anyone would see a programme perhaps glamourizing prostitution (and involving a girl of 14 apparently) would cause any offence? :oops:

    It is certainly a fictional story...it is not supposed to be loyal to the true facts...

    It recreates two average Roman girls used to the Dolce Vita...but maybe American feminists are bothered by the fact we Italian women love males and enjoy being objectified by them.
    Unlike them.

    It is a sort of game that amuses us.

    Underage sex, no matter how depicted, usually upsets many. The film (1992) of Marguerite Duras's book, The Lover (or L'Amant) caused some controversy for Jane March at the time, and that too was based on her own experiences apparently, but just the one lover so not so bad. :oops:

    PS I've read a few books of hers and did like them.
