Cold and uninteresting
11 October 1999 | by (Toronto, Ontario) – See all my reviews

I was a big fan of italian films up until this one. When you think of Italian films you normally think of warm, very emotional movies like Cinema Paradiso, Il Postino and others. When you see Love in the Mirror you'll think you accidentally walked into a French movie. The whole film is cold and it seems like the film tries to make you uninterested in the characters.

There are endless sex scenes that have no point and get really boring after a while. I've always felt that if teenaged guys get bored during gratuitous sex scenes, the director must be doing something wrong. The plot is impossible to follow and after a while you are just hoping it will end. I noticed a bunch of people looking at their watches during the last hour at the premiere at the film festival here in Toronto. I do have to admit that the cinematography and set design were incredible, but with all the other flaws you really don't care.
