A British babysitter working in Italy is being judged for arson under very strange circumstances.
9 March 2006 | by sniperdogruffoSee all my reviews

This is one of those foreign movies that gets my attention because the characters are mysterious and the setting is the way i like it: European.

The story is intriguing and the ending confirms all suspicions the viewer can have and ends in a deja-vu sort of way, which I guess not a lot of people like because they're used to the Hollywood crap with happy endings and guy keeping the girl after all, well this is not the case, and it is refreshing that these kind of movies are still being made. Even if people still don't understand it, it's something that's nice to the eyes and to the ears.

A mature movie deserves a mature audience, if anyone else differs with my opinion, then there's nothing I can do or even want to do.
