Fourteen filmlets tracing kinds of love through different age groups, with one recurring boy-to-man intermittently followed. Remarkably sensitive, discrete and intelligent.
From the small boy watching his mother breast feed, through the objects that identify the new apartment as "una casa trista" or Sandrelli pairing with the black leather kid to Chiari, walking naked in the middle of the night.
Atmospherically scored, each piece is touching and original and we hope that the ensemble will mean more than it finally does. Still superior Eurofilm.
