Love is complicated. When you add kids to the equation, it becomes even more confounding. Italian filmmaker Max Croci explores this relatable phenomenon in his latest film, The Truth About Love Is..., Dora and Davide have little in common—they enjoy different food, different books, different everything—but this doesn't keep them from falling for each other. Seven years and two children later, Dora and Davide split up. For Dora, it's far from easy. With the support of her eccentric family, a drunk but well-meaning babysitter, and her loving children, Dora learns to treasure the circumstances she's been given. While its demeanor remains lighthearted, The Truth About Love Is... revolves around a heavy subject most try not to think about: the fickleness of romance. The film acknowledges sorrow, recognizing that plans don't often turn out as expected, but it ultimately chooses optimism. The truth about love, like love itself, isn't straightforward, and Croci reminds us that this certainly isn't a reason not to love enthusiastically.
