Fasten Your Seatbelts
Italy • 1h 50m
Directed by Ferzan Özpetek • Drama • With Kasia Smutniak, Francesco Arca, Filippo Scicchitano • 2014 • 111 minutes
Elena and Antonio are not made for one another, having made vastly different personalities and life choices. They see the world differently, they relate differently to others, they think and live differently. What's more, they're both very much taken. Yet despite all this, they are swept away by a mutual attraction they struggle to fight. This gorgeous Italian drama follows Elena as she balances the demands and rewards of intimacy vs. responsibility over thirteen years of passion, friendship, and heartache.
