The hilarious ups and downs of a truly modern set of relationships.

Fausto, a narcissistic and pretentious intellectual working in advertising, can’t stop arguing with his girlfriend Clara, a professionally accomplished woman and a mother of two children, over the status of their relationship. Following their breakup, Fausto jumps straight into an affair with a young actress, while Clara explores previously unchartered territories when starting to see another woman. Yet, their story is not over, as carnal desires and lingering emotions take over their sensible resolutions. A brilliantly articulated and poignantly funny portrait of a clash between artistic aspirations and financial security, family commitments and personal freedom, The Moderns is a dazzling and entertaining commentary on the myriad challenges relationships face in today’s world. – Liva Petersone
