Manual Of Love

Entertainingly frank, snappy and engaging, the smash-hit romantic comedy from Giovanni Veronesi is Italy’s biggest box office success for many years. Bright, handsomely crafted, and featuring an all-star cast, ‘Manual of love’ is a terrific energetic film.

Four tales of love and betrayal: Tommaso (Silvio Muccino) meets and falls madly in love with the beautiful but aloof Giulia (Jasmine Trinca); Barbara (Margherita Buy) and Marco (Sergio Rubini) are a couple losing the spark in their relationship; traffic cop Ornella (Luciana Littizzetto) strays from her marriage; meanwhile melancholic paediatrician Goffredo (Carlo Verdone) isn’t so lucky in trying to win back his wife.
