Wistful and full of longing in a painfully adolescent way. I wanted to like this more than I did. I just wish the language could have been more lyrical rather than 'he said, she said'. It is, after all, meant to be 1930s Italy.

What I've learnt is this: don't ever fall in love with an artist. They are inconstant by default.
