Kudos!
1 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Every frame of this film was extraordinarily beautiful. I felt as though I was visiting Italy. The films locations and sets appeared to be authentic. The music score matched the movie content perfectly. The story line progressed flawlessly, building the drama and tension as the plot unfolded. The authenticity of the characters was enhanced by the inclusion of the cigarettes and profuse smoking. I personally quit smoking over five years ago and must admit that I wanted a cigarette as I watched this film. I resisted, but felt the tension none the less. Another thing that I appreciated was that the English subtitles were easy to follow without distracting from watching the movie. Casting? What can I say? I am in love with Valeria Golino. She is so talented and so beautiful. The male actors were exceptional as well. Days after watching the DVD I found myself thinking, actually, ruminating about the film. It is a valuable addition to my movie library. Kudos to the Director, Producer and writers of this exceptional film.
