Yes, yes, yes. A few aging stars - Redgrave, Nero, Testi - two promising young actors, Bernal and Seyfried, a sirupy story and the Tuscan countryside. The whole thing is watchable once but I should have seen a giallo instead. Already forgotten.
Do you want to fall in love? Right now? It is the problem of or generation. We can never get the satisfaction we need from our own love stories. Where did we meet, which wine did he pick, what was she wearing when i first saw her or did the bastard pay for our first date? The story of this movie is simple but the chance of such a love arising from coincidence simply put a smile on my face. Grazie destino, it is.
