In drama genre, Cosimo and Nicole is an engaging spectacle kindling the flame of pure passionate love in the heart of two young people, Cosimo & Nicole.

Genoa G8 protests bring Cosimo [Riccardo Scamarcio] and the beautiful Nicole [Clara Ponsot]  face to face and the ever watchful Cupid darts the unfailing arrow.

They fall for each other like nobody’s business, swearing eternal togetherness.

Flushed with an unmatched ardor, they roam across Europe, their common passion for music further cementing the bond.

After a come back to Genoa, they settle down together as they help common friend Paolo [Paolo Sassanelli], a rock show organizer and concert promoter.

But perhaps tragedy is waiting in the wings to happen, for working at a stage from a makeshift scaffolding the young boy Alioune, an immigrant, has a nasty fall. The three leave the poor immigrant boy for dead.

And this incident soon begins to cast its lengthening shadows on the otherwise idyllic love nest Cosimo and Nicole have built so assiduously.

The Director Francesco Amato, through his uninhibited bold style of film-making takes a touching peek at the Black-African versus White-European inferiority-superiority lore while touching at the nerve of the immigration saga of the unprivileged.

On the whole the film makes excellent attempt at unraveling the highs and lows of love in all its ardor and manifestation.

Watch it, among others, as the Italian Film Festival 2013 draws its curtains in NSW in November.
