Powerful human interest story
10 September 2018 | by ahoenSee all my reviews

Superb casting and photography by Garrone. Must see imho because the line between good and bad is not as sharp as black and white. Grey is the dominant colour even in the beautiful surroundings of Caste Volturno. Marcello Fonte deserves an award for his performance as dog groomer, father and criminal victim.
