Storyline

Matt Benson, an FBI investigator, has been posted to the island of Panarea in the Lipari archipelago within the framework of an agreement between the USA and Italy. He has been allocated a comfortable, well-protected house with vast grounds and a private cove facing the Ginostra volcano. This delights his wife Jessie and their 5-year-old daughter Tina. A few days after they arrive, a 11-year-old boy, Ettore Greco, a Mafia victim, is questioned by Matt about the death of his whole family in a car bombing. For security reasons, Matt decides to bring Ettore to the house where he is living. This artificial adoption gradually reveals the tragic secret binding Matt to the child, a secret Jessie knows nothing about. From secrets to lies, the atmosphere in the villa slowly leads the Benson family to the gates of hell. Outside is the danger, inside is the fear. In between is an orphan child...

Not one of Keitel's better films
11 August 2003 | by heuer12See all my reviews

Keitel and McDowell clearly are not comfortable with each other in this film. The dialogues are mechanical and the film is boring. Never have I heard McDowell speak her lines with such a strange accent, and her performance is never convincing in this film. But she's not the only one. Keitel's performance is far below par and so is Harry Dean Stanton's.
