With lyrics of the limitlessness of love from legendary Italian singer Mina's romantic ballad "Il cielo in una stanza" (lit. "The Sky in a Room"; fig. "In Paradise") as their soundtrack, the two spend a cherished afternoon together driving through the city and quixotically speculating about their past.
The film was shot in July in New York. On par with its enchanting ambiguity, the film makes no direct reference to a particular city, referring to it as "this city," but the Empire State Building can be seen in the view from McConaughey's character's balcony.
