Storyline

Based on the drama by Rocco Familiari, Black Sun is rooted in the facts of an event that transpired two decades ago. Agata and Manfredi is a young couple in Catania, deeply in love and growing happier as time goes by. When Manfredi is shot and killed, Agata emerges from her shock with a desire for vengeance. Once she identifies the murderer herself, she methodically seduces him in order to exact a confession. Zanussi's film centers on a woman who, like many Sicilians, is inherently distrustful of a justice system that veers toward leniency and inaction. Almost philosophical in tone and rich in symbolism, the film is universal with its idealistic romance and vows of "forever" while being simultaneously singular. Valeria Golino as Agata turns in a performance that conveys the hope and drive of a woman on a path towards tragedy. Written by AnonymousB

delicate frame
21 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

it is not convincing. and far to be coherent. it seems be a mixture of different influences, using the atmosphere, the eroticism, the old solutions for a reasonable work about nothing. sure, it is a beautiful film. but not more. this is far to be a sin. because, after its end, the only important thing remains its flavors. it seems be an improvisation. mixing influences/images from Luchino Visconti and memories about Mediteranean forms of justice and soap operas. the purpose - a Romantic story. and the result is decent. but only significant part remains the delicate frame of a tragic love story. and , maybe, it could be enough.
