Director Statement: Angelo Calarco
"Cupids" is a comedy about love, from the point of view of the ones who work to make love happen. And even if it might seems like a magical and romantic purpose, in reality it just happen to be another hard and stressful everyday job. "Cupids" is a short story that wants to use the comedy language to pass a positive message about connecting yourself with the people around you and not be scared of the opportunities that the life puts in front of you. It is a sweet funny story told by two very different, but somehow very similar characters, that needs to collaborate in order to achieve their goal.
