The mystery of forbidden room.
17 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

Tino is an art student.He arrives to Venice to paint and live with his aunt and uncle in their old-school antiquarian mansion.Not very long after his arrival he hears strange sounds coming from a room upstairs.Somebody is living in the attic.A lunatic brother of Tino's uncle,who is kept locked in the forbidden room and is not allowed to leave.Very subtle and quiet mystery drama set in beautiful Venice.The performances of Vittorio Gassman and Catherine Deneuve are excellent.The final twist is utterly surprising and incredibly sad.If you are a fan of "Don't Look Now" or "La Residenica" you can't miss "Anima Persa".It's a tightly written and extremely memorable film with lots of atmosphere and some perverse psycho-sexual overtones.8 out of 10.
