Mayhem ensues when a mature advertisement executive on the rebound falls for a 17-years-old teenager
Simple as well as sensitive film about youthful , including comedy , drama , emotion , along with colorful cinematography and wonderful songs . Light romantic movie deals with a 37-year-old , clever , successful advertising executive called Alex (Daniel Liotti) is longing to finally find emotional stability in his life , and decides to propose marriage to his girlfriend Elena (Irene Montala) . After she refuses his proposal , he is looking for the perfect advertising not to loose his job . Confused about being left alone , he avoids the idea of falling in love again . After being left his sweet-heart , Alex life takes a turn when a new young lady , a bubbly high school senior , enters his life . Niki (Paloma Bloyd) is a 17 years-old student , she's preparing her high school exams . One day , Alex accidentally runs over Niki, from that moment on everything will start to change . A traffic accident involving Niki , a teen ager in a motorcycle , serves as the excuse to have them meet . Alex and Niki fall in love but both are more than 20 years of difference between them .
Hilarious as well as romantic comedy is loaded with an enjoyable love story , nutty situations , funny events , and with a distinctly Spanish sense of humor . It results to be a remake to "Scusa Ma Ti Chiamo Amore" or "Sorry, If I Love You" with Raoul Bova as Alessandro 'Alex' Belli and Michela Quattrociocche as Niki Cavalli , being written and directed by Federico Moccia . Federico is a Best-seller writer and director , known for¨ Amore 14¨ , ¨Scusa Ma Ti Voglio Sposare¨ , ¨Tre Metri Sopra Il Cielo¨ (2004) or ¨Tres Metros Sobre el Cielo¨ (2010) and its sequel , ¨Tengo Ganas De Ti¨ (2012) . He also wrote several scripts as ¨Palla Al Centro¨ , ¨Ho Voglia Di Te¨ , ¨Classe Mista 3A¨ and ! Cannibal holocaust 2 ¡ . ¨Perdona Si Te Llamo Amor¨ relies heavily on the silly love story between and Niki/Paloma Bloyd and Alex/Daniel Liotti , reluctant at first who finally falls in love for her . The film moves in fits and starts most of which would be desirable , with more traps the viewer resists any kind , and some moments of enjoyment and others quite a few embarrassing . This is a typical Spanish romantic comedy from 2014 with the usual ingredients such as pleasing romance , brief drama , humor topped with a little bit of original elements here and there and improbable incidents . Although is full of predictability and cliché-ness the film results out to be pretty entertaining . It turns out to be pleasantly fun that offers no intellectual stimulus whatsoever ; an exercise in pure amusement in which entertainment and fun are guaranteed . The screenplay manages a lot of laughs from the audience and romantic elements that you never loose your attention from the film . Sympathetic performances from Daniel Liotti as a 37-year-old hard-working businessman . Liotti is an accomplished comedy actor and his presence is always welcome and here is perfect as successful , attractive , intelligent , and brilliant advertising executive . Paloma Bloyd is a beautiful newcomer to the Spanish cinema and she is unforgettable as a very young , free , impulsive and joyful teen . She parades sexily at her best and more relaxed and enticing than ever . Daniel and Paloma are cute together , and the chemistry was agreeable between them . The character Alex well performed by Daniel seems very passionate towards her . The comedy is mildly amusing , with that said though, I found it worthy to watch just for the pleasure of seeing gorgeous Paloma and attractive Daniel . I discovered ¨Scusa Ma Ti Chiamo Amore¨ after developing an interest in her . The hit of the show is undoubtedly for the fetching Paloma who gives the best fun screen acting . I liked everyone in the excellent cast, and the male and female actors , especially Paloma Bloyd/Daniel Liotti , were all very enticing . Support cast is frankly well such as Patricia Vico and Jaime Pujol as parents , Irene Montala , Pablo Ciapella , Andrea Duro , Cristina Brondo , Jan Cornet , Adria Collado . And cameo of Federico Moccia as the taxi driver .
Colorful photography in juicy atmosphere by David Omedes , deemed to be one of the best Spanish cameraman , he photographed successes such as ¨My mother likes woman , ¨Salvador¨ , ¨Chef's special¨, ¨Los Pelayo¨ , ¨A night in old Mexico¨ . Being filmed on location in Cadaqués, Girona, Barcelona , Catalonia, Spain . Catching musical score filled with marvellous songs sung by Dani Martin , Karen An , Terence Trent D'Arby , One Republic , Sananda Maitreya ,Vanessa Paradis , Lagarto Amarillo , Ed Sheeran , among others . The motion picture was professionally directed by Joaquin LLamas , though has some flaws and gaps . Joaquin manages to keep things moving around at a good pace . Llamas has also worked on film and television as a camera , editor and director assistant . But he is usually TV filmmaker , shooting episodes from ¨Acusados¨ , ¨Quart¨, Hermanos¨ , ¨Herederos¨, ¨Tita Cervera¨ and ¨Tierra De Lobos¨ .
