Synopsis by Nathan Southern
As directed by Giovanni Veronesi, this tripartite omnibus film gently reflects on varieties of love, as manifest at different stages of life. The first installment, titled "Youth," co-stars Laura Chiatti and Riccardo Scamarcio in the tale of Roberto, a hotshot young lawyer engaged to be married to Sara, a woman he loves dearly. During an expropriation of assets, however, he meets and falls hard for the Tuscan beauty Micol - which complicates his life to an immeasurable degree. The second installment, "Maturity," features Donatella Finocchiaro and Carlo Verdone in the story of an anchorman-cum-hurband who gets in way over his head with a femme fatale whom he encouters at a party. Finally, the third installment, "The Age of Reason," stars the legendary Robert De Niro as Adrian, an American art history instructor who moves to Rome and develops feelings for Viola (Monica Bellucci), the daughter of his building's concierge.
