Reminding us never to forget about the romantic side of life is Max Croci’s rom-com set in Rome and oozing with Italian passion.
Somewhat of a modern-day Cary Grant, Stefano (Luca Argentero, The Legendary Giulia, LIFF 15) is also a couples’ therapist. On the other hand, Claudia (Sarah Felberbaum, Viva Italy, LIFF 13) is a divorce lawyer, single mum of a pre-adolescent boy and very much the strong, independent woman. They both live and work in the same building, on the same floor.
Immediately apparent is the mutual feeling of aversion and attraction between the two. On top of that, there is a professional rivalry as they start seeing each other’s clients. Against all predictions, these polar opposites feel that unmistakable plucking of old-fashioned heartstrings whether they like it or not.
