'Falling in Love' is a black comedy revolving around suicide. Tired of his life, our 'hero' Salomone endlessly tries to kill himself in various manners, but luckily/unluckily for him he keeps failing over and over, until he meets the woman of his dreams and falls in love with her.

  • Whenever we want to leave anything , It pulls us to It's close... But whenever we live in it then it leaves us.... ( according to the video the thing is the world) Though It's sad and pathetic... But It's the reality and truth..
