In the early Sixties, at the dawn of the economic Italian boom, Pier Paolo Pasolini with "Comizi d'Amore" inaugurated his personal documentary inquiry, without frills but conducted with levity, on the sentimental and sexual behaviors of the Italians. In the 2000s the "Love Codes" are the ones that this short documentary tries to investigate, through interviews with three women (representing respectively three countries: India, Iran and Africa) all immigrated to Italy and long integrated into the working and social reality of our country. How do their feelings and their relationships with men live, these women? What do they think? What has changed, compared to the natives of fifty years ago, in the way of living the love of the "new Italians"? Leading the audience on this mild and curious trip to the capital of minorities is the filmmaker and graphic artist Harvinder Kapil Singh, who also emigrated from India to Italy since many years and just for sentimental reasons.
