Deliciously wry and entertaining, "Manual of Love 2" is the star-studded opening night selection for this year's festival. Highly acclaimed director Giovanni Veronesi delves once again into the mysterious recesses of the human heart and emerges with four new interconnecting episodes of family tragedy, ill-fated love affairs, eternal passion and fleeting relationships in a humorous, romantic and moving look at the lasting effect of love on the human condition.

Follow the journey of Franco and Manuela, a young infertile couple who fly to Barcelona for specialized fertility treatment; get involved in Filippo and Fosco's gay wedding preparations; judge for yourself whether Ernesto, a waiter at a high profile restaurant, should be having an illicit affair with the young Catalan kitchen hand, played by fiery newcomer Elsa Pataky; and meet Nicolas, a paralysed car crash survivor who falls in love with his beautiful physiotherapist Lucia, played by the gorgeous Monica Bellucci.

For director Giovanni Veronesi, this film marks only the second part of am ambitious series of episodes to be made into five films dealing with all aspects of love.
