Inventive and intense
30 June 2016 | by kikozSee all my reviews

Monitor is a small and straightforward story, yet inventive and intense. The direction and the script are clear cut, managing to keep the audience always on the edge. Both as a love story and a dystopian fable, Monitor manages to enthrall you with a few well-played means, turning the budget limits into virtue.

Director Alessio Lauria has a sharp, expressive eye, always knowing where to put the camera in order to get the best out of the slick script (co- written by Manuela Pinetti). Also, he knows how to direct actors: he gets a well-controlled but intense and meaningful performance out of the leading actors (Valeria Bilello and Michele Alhaique).
