As you want me
Among Netflix's romantic films, this 2000s comedy by Volfango De Biasi stands out with the golden couple of the decade: Nicolas Vaporidis and Cristiana Capotondi, who reinterpret the tale of the ugly duckling. She is Giada, a student of Communication Sciences passionate about the media and with little taste in dressing. He is Riccardo, a father's son who only thinks about conquests and holidays. Giada will give him repetitions, to allow him access to his father's money, his holiday fund, but of course she will fall in love with him. Thanks to a sort of deus ex machina, he will undergo a total restyling, to become another Jade, the Jade "as he wants it". But will this transformation lead to her losing herself? How You Want Me is a funny and brilliant comedy, with many romantic strokes. The jokes are funny, to dream an hour and a half with an Italian gem with a simple but successful plot.
Call me by your name
Elio is a seventeen-year-old Italian-American Jew and spends the summer in a decadent villa in the countryside of Crema, together with his family.

After an initial study, an uncontrollable passion will break out between the two. The unexpected crush, for Elio and Oliver, broke out in the 1980s, when homosexuality was anything but cleared of customs. But Elio can count on something unique: a disruptive experience, which will overwhelm him and leave an indelible mark on his adolescence. The award-winning film is directed by Luca Guadagnino and stars Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer in the lead roles.

They will separate and meet again, but the ending is a surprise, and to deal with it you need to get lots of packs of kleenex.
