Penelope Cruz said about her character "Carla and Guido's relationship has been going for many years. We don't see where they comme from, but you can imagine that their relationship has been going on five years or longer, and that they have a history together thaht they've been hiding. It's something thaht he doesn't want to let go of, and it makes her suffer a lot because she always hope that it will become something else. But she knows how he is: he's also married"
