I recently saw this at the 2008 Palm Springs International Film Festival. This is director Andrea Molaioli debut film and he comes out of the gate as a first time director with a very good film. The screenplay by Molaioli and Sandro Petraglia was adapted from the novel Don't Look Back by Norwegian novelist Karin Fossum and had been made into a mini series on Norwegian television in 2002. In this Italian setting, a young girl named Anna is found dead on the shore of a rural mountain lake, lying nude on her side with her clothes neatly arranged by her. Intitial suspects are the girl's boyfriend and a mentally slow man who lives nearby with his wheelchair bound elderly father and who first discovered the body and put his coat over it. A seasoned criminal investigator from the south, Inspector Giovani Sanzio (Toni Servillo), is called in to help local authorities to help solve the death. Once Sanzio enters the picture he is virtually in every scene and Servillo is excellent in the role. Director Molaioli gets the most from a fine supporting cast and this who-done-it takes several turns that keeps your interest peaked from beginning to end. Great cinematography from veteran photographer Ramiro Civita. I would give this an 8.0 out of 10 and recommend it.
