wonderful acting by Enrico LoVerso
2 May 2002 | by (st. pete, fla) – See all my reviews

This Italian film is actually set behind the fall of dictatorship in Albania, a country once part of Soviet rule.

LoVerso's part in the movie as one of the protagonists is wonderfully acted. The first film I had seen him in was Il Ladro di Bambini. LoVerso takes his characters and challenges them, creating deep personalities that continue to develop throughout the film.

I would recommend this film solely based on the wonderful acting by all actors in the film.
