What's the film about?
Extrovert aspirant actress and self-controlled successful actor are cast together in a costume romance, and they can't help falling in love. In the vein of Truffaut's Day for Night, this is a fine backstage drama about life imitating art and art imitating life, but also an homage to Italian cinema from the 1950s and 1960s (Visconti, Antonioni and, yes, Matarazzo). Last but not least, Lo Cascio and Ceccarelli are likely the best on-screen couple in recent Italian cinema.

...if you have ever wondered about contemporary Italian quality cinema.
