The third instalment of writer/director Giovanni Veronesi’s Manual of Love romantic-comedy chronicle, with an all-star cast including Robert De Niro and Monica Bellucci. Three stories illustrate the three ages of man – Youth, Maturity and Beyond – all connected by a taxi driving cupid (Emanuele Propizio).

There’s Roberto (Riccardo Scamarcio) the city lawyer who is ready to marry Sara (Valeria Solarino) until he meets country girl Micol (Laura Chiatti). Then there’s Fabio (Carlo Verdone), a married newsreader who is seduced by a crazy stalker, Eliana (Donatella Finocchiaro). Finally there’s Adrian (De Niro, speaking Italian), who reconnects with his youth thanks to his doorman’s ebullient daughter, Viola (Bellucci).
