An awful movie for an important memento
23 February 2005 | by massimobrambillaSee all my reviews

The idea is interesting and intriguing: in a country (Italy) which never actually made the aftermath of political terrorism and the reaction to it, the idea of catching an outstanding case of degenerated/refused justice and making a movie of it was a good starting point. Unluckily, the realization and the acting is so given away, so trivialized, that one could expect little subtitles running, like "Look Jane: now the character is experiencing a sense of freedom!". The image of the family, the fianceé, etc. are so stereotyped and predictable that one really does not know what the movie aims to. Telling us there was a wrong done? I do agree and sympathize with the victim. That does not justify THIS movie. A documentary-movie, maybe, a "J'accuse" production or a White book. Not a movie which shows such a ludicrous self-righteousness in being "artistic". It might be that it's a RAI-cinema production, but the movie could perfectly be chopped in two-three chunks and televised with some good-food-for-the-wholesome-family commercials in between.
