... turn a couple lights on.. and throw in an upbeat line or two
Every once in a while you come across these kinds of films.. dark.. brooding.. not a upbeat moment to be found. It's not they're poorly done.. there's just not lots of 'enjoyment' factor involved. If that's what you're looking for, than this is a 9 or 10.. otherwise, you get what most have given it, a solid 6. Cast is pretty solid.. and Carolina Crescentini is just gorgeous.. and a bonafide box office star. But even with her presence, sitting in near total darkness for an hour and a half does not make for the positive viewing experience. The story is weak, and that sets the tone for the overall production. Had they worked harder on the plot, with the cast they had chosen, it could have been much more an offering.
