Giandomenico Fracchia must be the world greatest loser: his colleagues at the chocolate factory make fun of him, his boss harrasses him, the woman he loves hates him... and things are going to be even worse! Fracchia is the lookalike of the Belva Umana (the Human Beast), the most dangerous criminal in the world. Because of this, he manages to get arrested (and heavily questioned) three times in one night. He is given a special safe-conduct by the police, but when he returns back home the Belva Umana is waiting for him... Written by Micio Nero

arise the vote
14 January 2009 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

6.2 votes equal to fragile. And 'now clear that this site has a strong antipathy towards the horror film. If this movie had been in Stephen King would have had more. For me to go to pieces is the comment by Aaron1375. AARON STILL TU, quache distant relative of SHARON? Restless character already seen previously. Why make comparisons between SILENT HILL AND MIRRORS? E '100 times better this movie. Silent hill comes from a video. Do you have anything like the original film plot. There are mediocre film recited by actors who have high ratings as we are beautiful film recited by people less known. This site is so. In this movie there is a coup scene that leaves us with mouth open the others kind of Nicole Kidman. But since this movie and played by Sutherland takes one vote less. that's disgusting. Arise THE VOTE!
