Light and summer movie
Let’s start by saying that Say hello to goodbye It’s a very interesting movie, offering 1 hour and 25 minutes of free time. The tones are very light and leave room for sarcasm. In Da ciao ad fareio, we do not find scenes with strong emotional impact or minimal roughness. Precisely for this reason, it proves to be a perfect movie to watch during the summer, in a moment of relaxation. The many scenes set on the town beach evoke the vibe of summer, as well as the moments when you see Claire and Aidan on a boat or on a rubber dinghy at sea. Much of the movie – the couple’s farewell night – is set in the summer, before college starts.
The photography emphasizes this light atmosphere with light colors, alternating with the romantic atmosphere where Claire and Aidan meet during their dates. The film is set in a classic American city, ranging from high school to an ice rink: this location conveys a sense of familiarity.

The two characters reveal that they have some shadows, but they are of little importance. In addition, their relationship is idyllic, and even occasional disagreements fit into a funny or poetic style. While it’s fun to witness such a simple and upbeat narrative about adolescence and love, the greater complexity of the characters would have given it more credibility.
The cast – made up mostly of really young actors – convince with their sense of freshness.
