Ravishing and charming, 6 January 2002
Author: SimoAsserini ( from Ravenna, Italy

This Marcello Aliprandi's "Un sussurro nel buio" is a very peculiar movie. It comes, regarding the plot and the themes, earlier than some celebrated movie: in particularly "Shock" (1976) by Mario Bava, but also "Shining" (1980) and "The Sixth Sense" (1999). The story is about a child who, in a big and perturbing house in a north Italy country, talks and plays with a - maybe - inexistent other child. His parents get worried and try to understand. The end of the story is not devoid of ambiguity. The movie is visually impressive, odd in the plot (with a good sense of suspense), full of mystery and fascination for irrational. I think that in the italian `fantastic' genre "Un sussurro nel buio" is among the best and the most original ones: Marcello Aliprandi may be compared with directors like Mario Bava, Pupi Avati and Michele Soavi. Even if it isn't always a very solid movie, if you like this italian genre you must see this refined film. Very enjoyable the cast: John Phillip Law, Nathalie Delon and even Joseph Cotten.
