While the main title claims the plot is based on director Zarantonello's novel "Alice dalle 4 alle 5". However, no such novel was ever published: the film is in fact a remake-expansion on Zarantonello's earlier short film "Alice dalle 4 alle 5" (2000) See more »
A gripping, entertaining thriller, one of the best I have ever seen. Twists and turns at every opportunity, all directed beautifully by Zarantonello. Barbara Steele looks amazing and is very much still a great star. I have recommended this movie to my friends and family and look forward to seeing it in theaters this weekend in LA and attending the Q&A with the director and the cast Friday and Saturday. I see a lot of movies and this was an outstanding movie that will be remembered for many years to come. Shot with a classic style in LA it represents a very morbid and innovative story about a mother who couldn't let go. Narrated through a series of flashbacks the contrast between the story and the visuals is striking.
