Storyline

Alessandro, the young protagonist of this story, lost his father when he was very little. He lives with his mother, Giulia, a swimming teacher, in a nice house in the hills just outside of town. It's a bright day. He is awakened by a car's engine noise. Something is wrong: he sees his mother leaving with his uncle Claudio and starts running after them, terrified, screaming. He can't stop her. The car is in a terrible collision and Alessandro gets to the accident scene only to see the ambulance leaving with its siren full on. Alessandro is taken to the police station. He's in a state of shock. An inspector looks after him. Crying, Alessandro confesses to sabotaging the car brakes and causing the accident. The inspector is a special guy. He manages to calm him down and makes him tell his story, starting from the day uncle Claudio came back to their home. Claudio is his father's brother and had not seen him since he was two years old. That is when Alessandro's life began to fill with ... Written by Ninafilm

17 February 2010 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This Italian independent movie is full of surprise, is an original psychological thriller inspired by the character of Hamlet. Ale is a 7 years old kid (who plays the role of Hamlet), a kid whose dreams are full of strange visions. Ale feels uncomfortable with his uncle, he thinks he hates him, but why? Why this sweet kid desires to kill his own uncle? The boy don't understand his feelings, he feels guilty and evil. But the truth his hidden in his memories, somehow Ale has to discover the real story of his family. Felice Farina after many comedies gives us an original thriller with great actors and a astonishing kid that act like a great professional: Lorenzo Vavassori.
