Is there a real science fiction story, about Morgan, the earthling? I was unable to see the titles of the science fiction books being read in the movie.
Antonio is a "goody-goody two-shoes" whose mother dressed him in a coat and tie, since he was little. In his escape to Rome, and his accidental encounter with Lisa, he lets himself veer off course, into alien territory: he lets himself get out of his comfortable character, in pursuit of Maria, Lisa's mother.
The kind understanding and advice of his employer tells the story that this is a very old tale of a man's being enamored of a woman who is not for him.
