Intense !!!!!!
29 June 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I went into this movie with a friend having only read the summary and we were not disappointed. The movie, although over two hours long, did not feel as such and was intense and gripping from start to finish.

The movie is set in Rome over 7 days and shows how the paths of people from various walks of life come together in an all too catastrophic and tragic way. This includes corrupt politicians, a hooker, and warring mafia gangs. The movie plays out like a snowball effect,starting with one event descending into the tragedy to become.

The movie does not shy from graphic sex scenes and excessive violence, but it is not done in poor taste. In fact, it actually makes the film so much more potent. The acting is of course superb, and the actors really embody their roles. Production is excellent from all aspects.

Definitely worth a watch, especially in a theatre.
