Three parallel stories that occur in the eve of the infamous Pozzetto Massacre, involving a femme-fatal that cons on rich men, a priest who's in love with his housekeeper and a tired-of-life veteran of war who has become a teacher and desires one of his female students. Three characters looking for love, redemption and second chances in a world reigned by their own fears, temptations, passions and pains, which will end up in a trigger effect of tragic events.Written by
¿Crees en el dolor, en el perdón, en el destino? No importa en qué creas. Terminarás enfrentándolo (Do you believe in pain, in forgiveness, in fate? No matter what you believe in. You'll end up facing it)
To start off with, this movie isn't for the faint of heart. This is a raw portrayal in what society has become. How some of us can be put on the outer, how we feel like we don't fit in, and what someone will do once all the frustration has come to boiling point.
This is a very scary film. Its from the perspective of three characters, whose stories ultimately intertwine in a very tragic finale. A War veteran English teacher who lives with his mother and feels like he has no purpose. A young female who works for a syndicate who specialize in robbing men at nightclubs, and a priest who is disillusioned with the life he has chosen.
None of these stories are feel good, but feel to have much more of a purpose than simply depressing the audience. Brilliant performances from the actors allow the viewer to invest time in their dilemmas, that most can relate to.
The inevitable time bomb is what makes you feel that the whole experience is tragic, but a message that can't be ignored, especially in a world where these sorts of tragedies happen far too often!
Brilliant cinema that everyone should check out!
