22 May 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

a romantic comedy. different by many others. for the Italian scent, for the humor mixed with rears, for the large categories of themes, for music and for the links between stories. a film who has love as axis for many other subjects, each defined with grace and precision. a film about life, options, mistakes and decisions. with a splendid subtle charm and right directions for be a complete show. the choice for romantic puzzles is not original but used in Ex with inspired art. because all is simple. the need of the other, the fight with the past, the discover of truth. and that does it a special film. not great. only the most inspired options for a Sunday evening.
