Can You Catch Herpes From Wearing Someonespants

Nene (Nene - Die Frühreife) 1977 Salvatore Samperi

Content: Italy in 1948, shortly before the first free elections. While the priest bluntly calling the election the Christian Democrats and the Representatives of the Communist Party (Ugo Tognazzi) tries to bring together in solidarity after the war created for his party, the father (Tino Schirinzi) of the 9 year-old Ju (Sven Valsecchi) other concerns. Like many others, he lacks work and money, so his rich coming from a family woman (Paola Senatore) grumbling constantly about her life with him. In addition, his experiences in the war have greatly added to, so he quickly flares up and enforces its rights as a family man with authority. Both his wife and his daughter, Pa (Vittoria Valsecchi) soon feel the floor, with his son, he comes to love.

Accordingly, it also determines that they take up the additional 14 year old daughter Nene (Leonora Fani) in his dying brother, even though space and food are scarce. Especially for Ju, the presence of his cousin proves welcome addition, for his growing curiosity about the female sex, is reciprocated by her understanding ...

The first free, democratic elections in Italy on 18 April 1948 form the historical background against which the action is in Nene located. Nevertheless, the film is a typical product of the 70s. Director Salvatore Samperi, after Cesare Lanza's novel also wrote the screenplay, did remain content in the historical context, but not the only parallels to the current policy of Italy, but also the provocative handling of sexuality refers to the time of origin of the film. Besides being in line despite contemporary features, the hairstyles of the children, but also the barber "Baffo" (Ugo Tognazzi), the 70-year period flavor.

Although the film again and again the effects of only a few years ago ended World War 2 are mentioned, gives Samperi beginning of a picture of Italian society, would be in the time of origin of the film have been conceivable. In the middle of the action here is Ju (Sven Valsecchi), a nine year old boy, is told from the perspective of history. His curiosity, especially with his awakening sexuality, the entire movie. While Ju is constantly on the lookout, explore the environment and questions linger, the rest of the family up in their traditional roles. His mother (Paola Senatore), complained that toils with the budget and tried using the little money that is at its disposal to provide for the family, constantly their fate. She comes from a wealthy family and accuses her husband of having brought them into this situation. Jus father (Tino Schirinzi), both through the experiences of war trauma, on the other hand, even frustrated material about his weak position trying to his role as head of household completed sovereign forfeit came back to excessive authority he acts out with a bat. Even older sister Jus Pa is in its passivity, which promotes their mother nor their tirades against men committed to the conservative role model.

Ju other hand, looks as the harbinger of modernity. The intelligent boy who is taught by a woman privately defeated his father in chess - which accepts this gnashing of teeth - makes friends with a colored youth from the neighborhood, and lives openly his curiosity for the female body. By the very fact that he enjoys as the son of the solidarity of the father who lives out his aggression only against the female members of the family, may be open space not be explained. Much more his role as a comment from the perspective of an intelligent, but still unencumbered people to understand. Although he speaks to the prejudices of his environment - like the first encounter with Rodi (Alberto Cancemi), the "mulatto" - but they have not clouded his mind, so he quickly it discharges and other concerns.

Ju addition there is a second "naive" role, which indicates more clearly the political situation in the 70s. Ugo Tognazzi plays a barber who is full of enthusiasm for the Communist Party and enters the elections on April 18, a great feast held at which he will celebrate the victory. This expectation was based on solidarity between resistance fighters and the population after World War 2. Almost necessarily, the Communist Party seemed to be in the series, in the face of decades of Right-wing radicalism, which Italy had fallen into misfortune, but other forces were already back in the game. As the priest in the well-attended local church, which can be very much to choose which party has a devout Christian. This apparent strengthening of the Communist Party, which lost the choice surprisingly clear against the Christian Democrats remembered, even in the situation of the party in the mid 70s, when they - again unsuccessfully - approached a second time the government. Ugo Tognazzis final question then is more a manifesto of personal disappointment as the obstinate rebellion. His belief in the population seems to have been lost to be and it would be interesting to know why he - is not listed in the credits - despite its striking role.

However, this is symptomatic of a movie that's named after a character that appears only after about 20 minutes on the screen. With Nene (Leonora Fani) is jus 14 year old cousin had come to his father because his brother is dying and her mother as a German-born again returned to their home country. This constellation does not quite fit in the face of young people who are already on the first night quite frankly shows respect to her little cousin. The film tries though to emphasize her outsider's existence, that in the beginning of the relationship with Rodi, also an outlaw of society, manifested, but Leonora Fani - in fact, already over 20 - more confident with frivolous, innocent nudity as a heavy fate. Samperi creates an erotic banter, which varies between timid approach in dealing with young people and Nenes open her little cousin. Even in the 70s, these actions were provocative, even if Samperi remains very restrained in its presentation, while it is hard to imagine that children and young people in post-war had so much space.

By mixing a contemporary socio-critical background and an action, the features of a sensitive 70s Adult Films has produced, in "nene" diffuse mixture of two different genres in the last scenes related to each other. Certainly wanted Samperi design the complex picture of a society that was at a crossroads between tradition and modernity, but a variety of different views of the child about the people up to deillusionierten adults showed no complex picture. However, it is Nenes amorous activities thanks to the movie to keep in spite of his real background, a certain lightness.

stay really memorable but Tognazzis closing arguments, and especially the small Ju, whose curiosity unwittingly teaches him the realities of the world -. At the end of the film both have lost their naivete
