Puzzle without a purpose
17 July 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Attempt at intertwining what are, essentially, several concurrent vignettes, unfortunately doesn't gel and left me cold at the disappointingly contrived conclusion. The focal point concerns a tenacious police-woman (Golino - you might remember her with bacon and eggs frying on her torso in "Hot Shots") breaking the rules to take down a white collar criminal, while other encounters (e.g. the meat-works guys entertaining some women on a night on the town) tend to fade into the background.

There's some explicit content (e.g. sex and child-birth), interesting characters and the scenery is mostly picturesque to a foreigner (Milano), but the lack of continuity and fusion that is promised (other than by shallow and unimaginative co-incidence) left me feeling misled.

While it's not a new concept, I liked the story concerning the prostitute and her 'savior', as he vainly attempts to protect her from the dangers inherent in her chosen profession; it was gritty, realistic looking, with plot twists, and offered more substance in the characterisations than the other stories, which were very lukewarm and uninvolved by comparison. Perhaps if it were possible to have made the feature about that story exclusively, this film would have more appeal.
