Roberto is a young and ambitious lawyer who is going to marry Sara. His whole life is perfectly planned out. During a expropriation which he is in charge of, he meets Micol, a gorgeous and provocative young woman from a small village in Tuscany. This is when things start to get complicated. Fabio, a famous anchorman, has been the perfect husband for twenty-five years. At a party one night, he meets Eliana, a femme fatale full of surprises. This one-night stand proves to be more than what he bargained for when she refuses to leave. Adrian is an American art history professor who moved to Rome after his divorce. He is friends with Augusto, the building's concierge, whose ebullient daughter Viola is about to disrupt his peaceful existence and relight his fire.
I eagerly waited for this movie to come out as I knew about De Niro's part in it, and I was not disappointed with the results. The Ages Of Love or Manuale D'Amour is a movie that shows picturesque passages of Italy thus letting the audience mix with the story in a still, yet amusive plot that is prompt of sweet, credible and comic relationships. It is a film which contains interesting stories and shows De Niro's versatility proving again the actor's will and ability to transform himself into different characters while showing a new side of the actor, that I myself, having seen most of his works, have never seen before. Perfect for a calm afternoon if you're willing to relax and have a good time.
