To go with the stalker heroine of SPETTATRICE, current Italian movies give us a sensitive pack rapist here, not the first in their films either.
Director Infascelli whose other work I must seek out, knew what she was doing. This one wouldn't play with a chicken thieving lead. It makes most of what we get in English seem pretty pallid.
Sansa who was the chic, self possessed lead of BONGIORNO NOTTE is transformed into a scruffy trainee vet in the small town that the hoon gang members call a posta di merda. The film shows the isolation and mediocrity which produces their attitudes with conviction that manages to stay just outside realism, despite all detailed location filming. It is no small tribute to the makers' skill that the leads do become involving and the outcome of their relationship generates suspense.
Performance, shooting and unexpected choice of music make the dodgy content compelling.
