"Nina is a lost soul drifting through life in a sun-bleached Rome that everyone else has abandoned for the Summer. Nina has agreed to spend the sweltering months housesitting a friend's apartment and caring for his depressed dog, hamster and aquarium. She has no plans, no relationship and no great ambitions other than a desire to visit China. As she strolls the streets, whizzes around on a vespa and satisfies her sweet tooth, Nina’s niggling existential angst makes her the modern equivalent of a character in an Antonioni film. Her friendship with 11-year-old Ettore and the acquisition of an admirer in shaggy-haired cellist Fabrizio set her on the road to a summer she will never forget."
20th Italian Film Festival Edinburgh, April 2013
