Love Conquers All?
5 November 2002 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

This Italian work with English subtitles is a tour-de-force examining the problems that a HIV+ individual has in balancing his desire for freedom with his responsibilities and his long term relationship. Claudio (Thomas Trabacchi) has planned nearly his whole life, including a job transfer to Milan. His lover Dario (Davide Bechini) makes the sacrifice and moves a couple weeks in advance of Claudio, to set up the new house. Meanwhile, Claudio approaches his juncture with abandon. He chances to meet an old trick, Andrea (Riccardo Salerno), and the two embark on an impulsive affair.

What is interesting about this movie is the amount which is not said. We never know until near the end how much Dario knows. Claudio and Dario's separation is contrasted by Claudio's intense relationships with his inquisitive mother and sister. Add in a friend (an HIV+ aerobics instructor) who speaks his mind easily, and it seems everyone is upset with Claudio. Everyone but Andrea, that is. Andrea accepts and loves Claudio for who he is, not what he's achieved. Perhaps it's because Claudio has opened up very little to anyone *but* Andrea.

The plot, of which I don't want to reveal too much, speaks volumes about the difference of attitudes between Italy and the USA. If Claudio's characters were an American in an American movie, many would consider him a villain. In Italy, he could be a hero.
