Suspenseful Italian Drama
I found a copy of this DVD at my local library and I'm glad I did, as I thought the movie was an intense and suspenseful drama that I liked quite a bit. It's well directed by Ivano de Matteo, who also co-wrote the script with Valentina Ferlan, and is based on the book by Herman Koch. I see there's going to be an American version of the film coming out next year, with a most talented all-star cast.
Here, this Italian drama centers on two well-to-do families, who are torn asunder when it's revealed that the teenage son of one family and the daughter of the other have committed a most heinous crime, Tension and suspense builds as the parents grapple with how to handle it all, and it didn't go the way I expected it to. It will all culminate in a most shocking finale.
Overall, the intrigue of this movie, which is well acted, written, and directed, kept me absorbed throughout, and you may very well find it to your liking.
