Director Silvio Soldini's lively, vibrant ensemble comedy follows--among other multifaceted and likeable characters--a kindhearted Genoan bookstore owner named Agata (Licia Maglietta), who suddenly finds her stable life shaken up when she's pursued by a much younger man.

Life has some beautiful surprises.

Licia Maglietta plays Agata, whose greatest love is her book store. Enter a younger man (Guiseppe Battiston) who is besotted by her, and turns her world inside out. Agata?s suppression of her desires creates an out of control emotional energy that affects the electrical systems around her. With outrageous characters and situations, Soldini shows the futility of resisting change. This is a magical and passionate experience that will open your heart to the ever altering landscape of life.
