An engaging portrait of two two gifted visionaries who inspired each other. I only wish that the film hovered a bit more on the visuals instead of forwarding each frame so quickly. i would have liked to have had more time to take in each stunning example of their work.

It's hard not to love this film. Lella and Massimo are so sweet together and although deeply passionate about their work, they seem oblivious to the fact they are visionaries. So sad that Massimo is no longer with us, but his influence on design will live on for generations to come.
