Storyline

Matt Benson, an FBI investigator, has been posted to the island of Panarea in the Lipari archipelago within the framework of an agreement between the USA and Italy. He has been allocated a comfortable, well-protected house with vast grounds and a private cove facing the Ginostra volcano. This delights his wife Jessie and their 5-year-old daughter Tina. A few days after they arrive, a 11-year-old boy, Ettore Greco, a Mafia victim, is questioned by Matt about the death of his whole family in a car bombing. For security reasons, Matt decides to bring Ettore to the house where he is living. This artificial adoption gradually reveals the tragic secret binding Matt to the child, a secret Jessie knows nothing about. From secrets to lies, the atmosphere in the villa slowly leads the Benson family to the gates of hell. Outside is the danger, inside is the fear. In between is an orphan child...

The most talked about movie of the year ?
20 September 2002 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Will this be the most talked about movie on the year? Perhaps - as everyone will be trying to figure out what went wrong with the film!

I saw this movie @ it's premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (2002) and I've got to say, it was the most talked about movie between my friends and I. We just had so many questions about what various pieces of the movie meant as we were all sure we had to be missing something. We concluded that no, we didn't miss anything - there just wasn't enough there to tie it all together.

The movie has a lot of beautiful shots of the Italian coast, and the island of Ginostra. I think the editors could have done a much better job of pulling everything together. Also, I just didn't feel any chemistry between Harry Kietel and Andie MacDowell who were playing husband and wife.
