An Italian Romance
Filmfest 2005

A sweeping romance set in fascist Italy, it traces the stormy relationship of Giovanni and Maria. He is a suavely handsome banker, she is a sexy, earthy beautician. Their on-again, off-again romance throws two old flames back into each other‘s arms in this Italian cinematic expression of deeply felt love. The married Giovanni and old love Maria are modernized characters from a famous Italian novel, lovers who just can‘t forget that carnal love often travels more than skin deep.
