This drama is set in the northeast Italian province, a location the director Mazzacurati usually used as a background for his movies. It's the story of a young and attractive elementary school teacher Mara, who is relocated to a little town in the north of Italy. The initial plot is predictable since it carries out with the reactions of a small community to the arrival of the new teacher. In particular some characters stand out as the young Giovanni, who has a big passion for journalism and who starts out by writing small articles for a local newspaper; the rich entrepreneur who is at the center of the social life of the town; the Tunisian mechanic Hassan; who has a love story with Mara. The picture of the Italian provincial life is quite realistic but what really surprised me in a positive way was the unexpected noir turn the movie takes at the end and for which the movie deserves to be watched.
