Well, tastes are not taken into account, and we can say that we love Italian cinema and its variety, ranging from Felliniappreciating Rossellini and while we’re at it, we might as well be more contemporary and say we like the endearing Robert Benigni. However, ‘Jumping from High Places’ isn’t exactly “that” kind of Italian film. It is true that Italy is the cradle of the Renaissance, and we understand that they are proud of it, but this film does not attract our attention for its mannerist style, read lack of it, nor for its auric sense of existence.

That said, if you’re looking for an easy rom-com, simple in its premise, dramatic at times, and even sentimental, sweet and intimate, give this movie a shot, because you might enjoy it.

The idea isn’t particularly original, and it probably won’t get much attention or a spot on the big boys’ shelf. It is a feature to be observed and not pondered, so it will inevitably be forgotten shortly after being seen. Definitely formulaic, it’s a repeat of what we’ve seen, evoking in viewers a sense of familiarity and innocuous relationship that will allow them to tune out watching this hobby movie.

It has its highlights, all stemming from it being the formula-driven production that it is, navigating the gravity of the situation with the comedy of romance that the lead pursues. Of course, we cannot help being on the side of the protagonist, since she lends herself to being liked; I mean, it’s a romantic comedy-drama, hardly the mix of genres to have an unpleasant main character.

With ‘Jumping from High Places’ we leave behind the Italian classics of Cinecittà, and move on to a “summer” film that, being as inoffensive as it is, could be liked by many; they will be somewhat entertained.

It entertains, but it does not conquer us. It’s like having a nice date that begins and ends with a nice chat over a decent dinner. It will not leave a mark on our broken hearts that now belong to streaming platforms.
