I honestly don't know what to think about MALADOLESCENZA. It is a very controversial film, that's for sure and like I wrote earlier it depends on your point of view. Personally I didn't find the movie offensive or pornographic. Actually I admired the teenagers in it for their great acting and for how brave and professional they were. I don't believe the filmmaker's intention was to just exploit these teens because the movie has much more going on for it besides sex. Actually, the story is very realistic and I believe most children/teenagers have similar experiences of love and extreme jealousy. Not to mention the mean games the two kids were playing with Laura Wendel's character- I could relate to that stuff while watching the film.
As for the teenage actors, I would like to know their exact age during the making of the film. I'd also be very curious to know if they had been sexually active in their personal lives before taking part in the movie- that would shed some light to the story.
Overall, I can only recommend the movie.
