Un Gioco Da Ragazze is a highly accomplished and beautifully made film.
The writing, acting and direction is exquisite and is brought to life by the two leads Chiara Chiti and Filippo Nigro. Chiti is superb as the manipulative sociopath Elena, who is essentially the core of the film bringing both sensitivity and malice to her underrated performance.
Although the themes of adultery, teenage drug taking and casual sex may be taboo, it is a very potent portrait of teenage Europe. Matteo Rovere's film is a stylish and thought-provoking piece of work. It is only a shame it was not widely released in Europe as it fares better than a lot of recent European films.
