Cosimo is Italian, Nicole is French. It takes one look for them to fall madly in love. They decide to go to Genoa, where they first met, to work for a friend who organizes concerts. However, when an accident risks the couple’s love, they have to face a decision that could determine their future.
Francesco Amato’s sophomore feature Cosimo and Nicole navigates one of today’s most charged sociopolitical issues—clandestine immigration—while unfolding as a hymn to music and love at first sight. Starring some of Italian rock’s leading bands including Afterhours, Marlene Kuntz and Verdena!
