THE LAST KISS

by Gabriele Muccino

synopsis

The last Kiss is a film about the stories of eight main characters, whose lives connect in rhythmic and parallel passions. They are all different ages: Francesca is eighteen and during the film she falls in love with Carlo, who is now thirty – like his friends Adriano, Alberto and Marco. Marco, in turn, is with 27-year old Giulia, the romantic and idealistic mother of his unborn son. Giulia’s mother Anna, now in her fifties, with twenty-nine years of marriage behind her and a great fear of aging, is coming to accept the end of her youth.
