“The ultimate love story is the tale of the ultimate man and the ultimate woman. And what are the distinguishing marks of the ultimate man? Well, he is charming like Marcello Mastroianni in La Dolce Vita. But he’s also strapping like Brad Pitt in the Fight Club. He is boyish like Leonardo DiCaprio in Titanic... or more like Alain Delon in Rocco and His Brothers, just a little bit taller, maybe like Belmondo. He is devastating like Clark Gable and sometimes a little bit melancholy, like Tony Leung Chiu Wai in In the Mood for Love. He is decisive like Sean Connery or Daniel Craig as James Bond, but unpredictable and eccentric like Latinovits in Szindbád. He’s also a bit awkward, like Chaplin in Modern Times but enigmatic and a little scary, like Gary Oldman in Dracula. And of course, he is very funny, like Woody Allen in Annie Hall. And what about the ultimate woman? She is certainly unpredictable and instinctive like Lollobrigida, but she’s also graceful and knows how to behave, like Audrey Hepburn. She’s girlish, like Audrey Tautou, but cool and distant like Greta Garbo. She is funny and familiar like Julia Roberts, but her smile is like Ava Gardner’s. She is divine, like Sophia Loren, but it’s not a problem if she resembles Monica Bellucci... and at the same time she’s ethereal like Liv Tyler when she’s playing a fairy. She knows what she wants, like Sharon Stone, but sometimes she’s lost and innocent, like Zita Szeleczky. And—I almost forgot—she kisses like Kim Novak. Oh, my God, what happens, if He meets Her?!”
