Well, I’m going to talk about three metres above the sky because it’s one of my favourite
s films and one of my favourite s books too. They tell the story of a girl called Babi, and a boy called Step, but in the sSpanish version film his name is ‘H’. Babi is a student who likes talking about clothes and is looking for love. Step prefers speed, violence and risk. Both belong to diferent worlds but they share a thing in common, love, that with time will make them change.
Three metres above the sky is a romantic comedy. It was published first time in 1992 in a edition paid by the writer, Federico Moccia, and this edition sold out inmediatly, it was photocopied one an again until. It was re-edited in 2004. And it became a great succes. In the book Babi is a good person, and she still hasn’t found true love. On the contrary Step is violent, rebel, irresponsible and feared by everybody. But this will change: She will become more rebel and he will become more tender.
Step follows in his motor bike Babi’s mercedes one day that. She, her sister and her father go to school. Step is impertinent because he fell in love with her at first sight, but se doesn’t like him at first.
