Amici miei... Come tutto ebbe inizio
35mm - colour
The "Amici Miei" saga continues with the "toscanacci" friends in Florence during the Great Plague of the 1400’s and in the Medici court.
The friends, Duccio (MICHELE PLACIDO), Cecco (GIORGIO PANARIELLO), Jacopo (PAOLO HENDEL), Manfredo (MASSIMO GHINI) and Filippo (CHRISTIAN DE SICA) want to enjoy the pleasures of youth and avoid the responsibilities of adulthood. Not even the Great Plague can stop the best friends from living life to the fullest, even with those less passionately alive falling by the wayside. Eventually, after playing their pranks on everyone in town who crosses them, they run out of targets and start to turn on each other.
After all, what is a best friend for?
