Elena (Kasia Smutniak) and Antonio (Francesco Arca) seem not to be made for each other. They are too different in terms of character, life choices, worldview, and the way they relate to others. They are total opposites. However, they are overwhelmed by a mutual attraction they're trying hard to avoid; but to which they succumb to. This dramedy on relationships also gets a very credible performance from Paola Miraccione, who plays the tragic, albeit funny, character Egle.Written by
It's truly a pretty decent little film.. with some very good performances. The two lead actors are both exceptionally gorgeous, and to the movie's credit, the film does not so much play on this fact, and you never feel their appearance gets in the way of the story. She is such an attractive woman (do a search on bing.com.. look at her amazing still images), for sure she's gotta be a model or actress. In addition to her natural beauty, she shows in this production she's got real acting talent.. her David di Donatello Best Actress nomination for this film was no fluke. There's no doubt the film would have benefited from being 15-20 minutes shorter. Lots of scenes were dragged out just a bit too long.. leaving viewers really wanting out of the moment. This can be said of lots of movies, the little word 'cut' being at times very hard to implement. And it's really unfortunate stateside audiences rarely get to viewing this style of films.. for they would have a positive impact and expand on the limited choices now offered by mainstream Hollywood.
