I'm surprised there are no comments for this film. It isn't all that good, but far worse films are commented on here - even praised.
I think I could watch Monica Bellucci fill out tax forms. I believe I can honestly say she is the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. She is why I watched this film. While it is not horrible, I would probably never consider watching it again if it were not for her presence in it.
The film itself is somewhat perplexing. While listed at this site as a thriller it is likely the most low-key thriller I have ever seen. But I'm not sure what else you'd call it. Crimes are committed, lives are in danger. But it isn't very involving. There is very little dialogue and there are many long shots of people not doing much - smoking, drinking coffee, looking into the mirror. This gives you periodic opportunities to look at Monica of course. But while this pacing seemed intentional I'm not sure if it was the best decision for the film.
While not horrible, the film is very unremarkable aside from Monica. If you are a fan of hers and watch anything she's in, this won't be the worst film you see. But I'm not sure I can recommend it for anyone but Bellucci completists. That said there are far worse films you could spend 80 minutes watching.
