The “Words” just don’t stop coming when an attractive young ecologist lectures her friends about how nearly perfect her relationship was, but auds will wish she’d find something else to say in Corso Salani’s middling drama of uncertainty in love. Long on verbiage and short on ideas, pic was nevertheless the subject of “making of” docu “Personal Mail”; neither have much to recommend them. A small local release is probable, followed by golden silence.

Adela (Paloma Calle) is a Spanish conservationist working in Chile to stop environmental destruction. Her eyes send daggers into Alberto (helmer Salani), an Italian with plans to construct a dam. His flirtations break through her defenses, and soon she rejoices in this flawless relationship, until she senses his love doesn’t match the completeness of hers. Acting is passable, but neutered “Sex and the City” girl-talk plays one note. A fondness for jiggling hand-held lensing, in a bid for a “you-are-there” style, is tedious. Tech credits are shabby, with tinny sound in several scenes.
