Manual of Love

In the style of La Ronde, this frothy 2005 Italian comedy by Giovanni Veronesi consists of four overlapping stories, each covering a different aspect of love: infatuation, crisis, betrayal, and abandonment. All four contain hilarious moments, but the most endearing is the first, about an unemployed young man (Silvio Muccino) smitten with a beautiful woman (Jasmine Trinca). Undeterred by her brush-offs, he pursues her until she agrees to date him, and the story gradually begins to explore how attraction can become indistinguishable from obsession. In Italian with subtitles. 108 min.
