This drama about an obsessive relationship that takes a dark turn is grounded by two powerhouse performances by Riccardo Scamarcio and Clara Ponsot. They play the titular characters who meet at a political demonstration in France and travel together to Genoa, finding work with a concert promoter and living and loving in a beautiful shack by the sea. When an immigrant coworker from Guinea is injured, the resulting fracas puts the lovers on the run and their relationship in jeopardy. Directed with urgency by Francesco Amato, Cosimo and Nicole is a vibrant portrait of youthful passion amid the economic and social circumstances of present-day Europe.
