Excellent filmmaking!!!!
12 January 2013 | by paschan-1See all my reviews

Beautiful photography, excellent scenery, complex character development with a perfect musical score fitting the storytelling, this was absolutely fantastic. A great story with unbelievable twists. A must-see for any Giallo, Mystery or Crime movies fan. Amy Hesketh's second movie delivers with everything expected. It's only her second movie and I can already see a great and promising career as a Director/Actress/Writer. My favorite detail was that among Barbazul's wives, you see every type of woman from a psychological point of view. The character development is very realistic. I'm already waiting for Amy Hesketh's next masterpiece.
