This little , independent Italian film was precious to me when I stumbled upon it in a Film Festival. The freshness of its characters and the poignancy of its story struck me as unusual. In short, it is a story about youngsters trying to make their way in today's Italy, a media-contaminated culture like all others (practically) these days. A strangely lazy love-story, but not without poignancy, is destroyed by 'her' ambition, and 'his' ambiguity. No one dies in the finale, but the SOUL is left smarting. Our protagonists have been the unwilling victims of a T.V. program's audience... Raped and left, helpless, to pick up the pieces. A touching film debut by director Verdecchi. Two subtle and utterly human characters, well depicted by Troisi-like Prodan, and the newcomer Lena. Why 'Early Warning'? The film is ahead of its time in the denouncement of Television's "Reality T.V." tripe, and its results. Is it available in DVD?
