A very pleasant film which unobtrusively tells a moving story. The main theme is freedom and the difficulty to achieve freedom-both in one's personal but also in the public life.Wonderful shots of Venice engulfed in fogs and radiating a winter melancholy.What I like in the film is that it shows how the outside world brutally invades and even destroys the life of small people.The terrorist menace in Italy in the 70s is also shown but(I like that immensely)Emmanuel Robles(the writer of the book on which the film is based)does not sympathize to it-unlike many French "intellectuals"of his generation(take Sartre for example).The ending of the film remains open and yet hope prevails.After all she manages to set herself free from her tyrannical and obsessive ex-lover.Pity that Robles is a very underestimated writer-he deserves more attention from the reading public.
