The love between Alex, a mature successful advertising agent, and Niki, now twenty, continues to deepen and blossom. It has now been three years since they vowed to love each other forever before their special rendezvous lighthouse. Despite their age difference, Alex is convinced Niki is the woman he wants to marry. And Niki, in the beginning, is overjoyed. Yet, as the crucial date approaches, mounting doubts, fears - and temptations too - suddenly make Niki do the unthinkable. She calls off the wedding. Far from being the end of the couple's love story, however, this could unexpectedly be the tender, courageous and amusing beginning of Niki and Alex's "impossible" dream come true... Written by
Alex, who fell in love with Niki when we last saw him, decides he cannot be without her and gets the nerve to propose. Niki, now back studying at the university is not completely sure about how things are going to work out between her and Alex, but decides to give it a chance. The lovers soon move in together. The thing now is to introduce Niki and her family to his parents, who are clearly aristocrats, in sharp contrast with Niki's more down to earth folks.
At the same time, Alex's three best friends begin experiencing crises of their own, ending in painful separations. Niki, meets an intense young man, Guido, who likes her. For a while, Niki gets confused about the commitment she is about to go through, getting cold feet at the prospect of making the wrong decision. Even though she had a solid thing going with Alex, she gives Guido a chance with serious consequences.
Another Italian 'romcom' from director Federico Moccia, who gave us the 2008 "Sorry, If I Call You Love". The story follow the lovers, Alex and Niki now back in Rome. The film reminded this viewer of some better made movies, more in particular of "Sex in the City" and others of the genre. Director Moccia keeps a frantic pace in the film. The young, attractive cast goes through the motions, but when all is said and done, it did not add anything new to the genre.
Raoul Bova is the handsome Alex and Michela Quattrociocche is Niki. They are pleasant actors with a bright future in the Italian cinema. On the other hand, the film does not pretend to be anything but an excuse to spend a couple of hours in the company of attractive people one would not probably ever meet in real life.
