Bad news on the doorstep:
|A.C.A.B. = Roma Victor!|
I can't remember if I cried:The balcony scene with Filippo Nigro's anti-establishment monologue has been singled out as the film's most powerful play but I feel the most for Favino's Cobra. His body is decorated with a Celtic cross and room wall with Mussolini paraphernalia, but finds himself alone in hummin the tune that was supposed to drum up the camaraderie that once held his brethren together. This quiet scene, in a police van en route to yet another bust-up, defines the movie for me.
A.C.A.B. Check out the movie's official website (in Italian) and it's very decorated Facebook page for more details.★★★

Pierfrancesco Favino on his character Cobra: "E' stata dura interpretare il mio personaggio, soprattutto dal punto di vista psicologico. Entrare in una situazione mentale cosi lontana, verso la quale tutti abbiamo pregiudizi. Una bella sfida!"
