Could and should have been better....
28 July 2020 | by buigerSee all my reviews

Dramatically lacking. A true story like this could have been made much more compelling and interesting. The movie insinuates a lot, but never actually proves or asserts anything, remains inconclusive. The 'flash forwards' are irritating and if nothing else, confusing for the spectator not intimately 'in the know' of the actual true story. The only positive aspect of the movie is the usually brilliant Rade Serbedzija who makes an excellent portrait of Miran Hrovatin. Not the same can be said of Giovanna Mezzogiorno in the role of Iliaria Alpi who is lackluster and unbelievable. When comparing these two characters in this film, you can clearly see what a difference great acting makes compared to average actring. All in all, below average, could and should have been much better.
