Ages of Love (Manuale d’amore 3)

Director: Giovanni Veronesi

Starring: Robert De Niro, Carlo Verdone, Riccardo Scamarcio, Monica Bellucci, Michele Placido, Laura Chiatti, Donatella Finocchiaro, Valeria Solarino, Vittorio Emanuele Propizio, Marina Rocco

This is a romantic comedy involving a trilogy of vignettes of love stories connected by a taxi-driving Cupid (Emanuele Propizio). Set in Italy it explores the three ages of love (i.e. youth; maturity; and beyond). The first tale involves an ambitious lawyer Roberto (Riccardo Scamarcio) who wants to marry Sara (Valeria Solarino) until he is bewitched by Micol (Laura Chiatt) . Next we meet Fabio (Carlo Verdone) a married newscaster who is seduced by Eliana (Donatella Finocchiaro). Finally there is Adrian (Robert De Niro), an art professor from the US now living in Rome, who meets and courts his doorman’s daughter,Viola played by (the gorgeous) Monica Bellucci . Amusing and entertaining and a must for all who hanker to see Robert De Niro talking Italian.
