L’AMORE È NELL’ARIA (Love is in the air, 2010, shortfilm, S16mm, 14’)

“Mario is poor and still lives with his mother. Every day he is confronted with his friend Lucrezio’s affluence. During an outing on the lake, he can’t take it anymore. Witty morality play by the highly prolific Italian duo Germondari and Spagnoli”. (Rotterdam IFF 2010)

“Mario è povero, e vive ancora con la madre. Lucrezio, suo amico, è invece molto ricco. I due uomini giocano con il sesso, finché l’amore non entra in gioco a sua volta...” (W.Germondari)

"For the originality, irony, alternative and amused vision of the world of sexuality” (Best Shortfilm Award, Bizzarro IFF, Bologna, Italy, 2018)

The video is part of the Tractatus logico-phileroticus’ project.
