An aspiring young writer (Jackson) tracks a literary titan (Keitel) suffering from writers block to his refuge in rural Italy and learns about life and love from the irascible genius and his daughters.
A very well written story. The film gives a kaleidoscopic view of the underground world with an emerging focus on the role and life of individuals. The film provides reflections on deepest human emotions portrayed in a world where one does not expect such feelings to exist nor the desire to right wrongs. The film is challenging and a puzzle which slowly unfolds. Overall an interesting movie showing the more than two faces of the crime world. What We see is a sobering and even tragic picture of the crime world. There is fine acting and good selection of locations. For English speakers who must follow the translation some of the impact of the film in Cantonese may, unfortunately, not be fully appreciated.
