Thomas: It's not about 'whodunnit'... there are so many angles, how to organize it in a meaningful way, it's important that its a story based on truth, but i want to do something that transcends that, that its not just a simple reconstruction...

A movie about the writer.
3 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

I never write reviews, but actually signed on to this site to post a review after watching this movie. I feel like I just wasted two hours of my life. It takes a lot for me to not like a movie... I can usually find something to like....but not with this movie. I thought this movie would be about the story of the murder. It's not. It's really a movie about the writer's experiences while researching this murder. The whole movie is a bumbling mess, focused more on the writer's life, than on the actual murder case. It should not be advertised as being about the murder. It's really like this writer used this story as a platform to write a story about his own life, which by the way, is not interesting enough to carry a movie. To make it even worse, the very few moments they recreate the trial....it's all spoken in Italian with no translation.
