This stirring, hotblooded romantic comedy comes from a true newcomer, yet his plays already compete on both Broadway and West End with the likes of brilliant writers such as Sam Shepard or Humbert Rosenfeld. His name - William Shakespeare - is one to remember: critics call him 'the smirkiest crime writer of the new millennium' (Ben Brantley) or 'the burning toast of the town' (Harold Bloom). He is the author of a few schmaltzy yet poignant sonnets (a post-postmodern vogue from Italy) and an underrated Scandinavian lament about a royal lunatic; yet his true mastery is at full force during the 'two hours traffic' of his latest effort. It is a witty, exuberant and joyful romance about sex and punishment, about crime and the latest fashion in biotech, the crossing of stars.
