A wonderful, enchanting film, which answers to the main question that each of us has asked ourselves at least once in our life "what is love?" with depth and witty philosophical reflections.

It is said that a masterpiece can be seen from the very first frames. And this film, which begins with the protagonist celebrating his birthday by driving with 50 lighted candles on the dashboard of his car, makes you understand that you are beginning to see something of extraordinary, sublime, out of the common banality of 99% films about love, aesthetic and poetic. And since from those initial moments you are kidnapped and glued to the screen, in a dream of feelings, emotions, colors, music, very refined poetic and perfect scenes. Unlike what the title would suggest, of “Sex”, in the banal sense of the most common cinematographic representations of explicit sexual scenes, so much appreciated by those who are superficial and unimaginative, and usually “sold out” at the box office, there is absolutely nothing, because here the director flyes to much higher peaks. Very high.

“Love (the main character tells us) always comes from fortuitous circumstances”. And this film entered my personal DVD collection by chance, bought in a batch of films. And it was for me a "love at first sight". It can therefore be said that it is not me who chose the film, but the film that chose me.
