A third feature for director/co-scenarist Francesco Falaschi (“I Am Emma,” “Last Minute Marocco”) that feels like an immature first, “This World Is For You” is breezy to a fault in depicting the tumultuous summer of a young Tuscan coastal native trying to secure his future. Lightweight seriocomedy feels more like a compilation of mildly quirky incidents than a fully realized narrative, killing time pleasantly but leaving little impact, rather like its amiable blank of a hero. Any offshore exposure is likely to skew smallscreen.
Wanting to continue his education toward becoming a writer, 19-year-old Teo (Matteo Petrini, apparently playing himself) is hobbled by a lack of funds and an odd tendency to antagonize academic examiners. His separated parents (Paolo Sassanelli, Cecilia Dazzi) are comically self-absorbed and unsupportive; a close friend (Domenico Diele) steals a story idea to launch his own writing career. Meanwhile, Teo bounces from one temp job to another, including launching a waterfront “floating cinema.” Pic is lively enough but so thinly developed that when Teo proclaims g.f. Chiara (Eugenia Costantini) “the woman of my life” near the close, they still seem barely acquainted. Modest package is polished.
