Not your typical Hollywood fare
8 August 2001 | by (Montréal, Québec, Canada) – See all my reviews

The synopsis I had read and years of mental poisoning by Hollywood made me go into this film expecting a thriller along the lines of "Fatal Attraction". Instead, this is a psychological drama about Gina, a married woman who finds herself the object of desire of Saverio, a slightly mentally ill but bright and sensitive young man. At first she is scared and her husband Riccardo is furious, but they slowly become more understanding. Not wonderful but quite interesting, especially if you are tired of formulaic Hollywood junk.
