Stylish, Classy, Sensual but with a Confused Screenplay
24 March 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The girlfriend (Anna Mouglalis) of Detective Luca Mocci (Luigi Lo Cascio) moves from the house her friend Charlotte to live with him. When the corpse of the upper-class escort and student Valentina Martini (Luigi Lo Cascio) is found in an apartment tied and beaten after a kinky sex, Detective Mocci becomes obsessed with his investigation in the underworld of sex in his city, arising dark desires and affecting his relationship with his girlfriend.

"Mare Nero" is a stylish, classy and sensual thriller, but unfortunately the characters and situations are not well developed in the confused screenplay, where even the name of the detective's girlfriend is not disclosed. The ambiguity and weird personality of Mocci and the erotic games of his girlfriend are really not well developed. The good points are the stunning cinematography and soundtrack and the beauty of the actresses. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Mar Sombrio" ("Dark Sea")
