Aro Recommended Manual of Love, The


aka: Manuale d'amore
Italy 2005, 116 minutes
Dir. Giovanni Veronesi
In Italian with English subtitles
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Comedy / Romance


Aroview: Four couples experience the agony and ecstasy of modern love in this appealing romance of intertwining relationships.

An agreeable, attractive package, the film is largely successful in capturing the ebb and flow of ‘amore’, along with the many foibles, pitfalls, and mysteries of falling in love. Whether it overcomes its familiarity as a narrative of loosely connected characters is another story, though does benefit from its gorgeous Italian setting, which is nothing if not easy on the eye.
