Credible and stimulating
16 November 2007 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

It is pleasant to see Carlo Mazzacurati, one of Italy's finest director, finally return to the artistic strength and depth of character or his early works such as "Notte Italiana". Set in a small northern Italian town whose solitude and cold it reflects so powerfully, the movie beautifully depicts a story of tragic humanity with characters mastered with excellence by three newcomers, among whom Valentina Lodovini emerges as a promising new actress. Likely the best Italian movie of the year, and beautifully photographed, "La Giusta Distanza" was greeted with enthusiasm by audiences at the Rome Cinema Festival with its story of passion and racial and social integration.
