Some of the lines that run across Italian Romantic are the things we see and are whisked away, sounds, the murmurs and music of a city, the seductive walk of a woman –the beautiful Camila Toker–, the silent desire of a man filming and chasing, the local people of a beach resort and their counterpart, the tourists. Cinema within cinema, like an endless Russian doll. Shot during the last Mar del Plata Film Fest, the film’s images range from close-ups of the woman giving a ghostly interview to her love flings as she goes through the city sharing her experiences. A great compilation of the things driven by the experience of watching, making, and feeling films, either from inside or outside of it, as protagonists, directors, or spectators.
