They made their point
16 February 2019 | by s-dani-dsSee all my reviews

As italian, but most of all as moviegoer, I was waiting for a production like this in Italy for a long time. They strictly made their point, I was totally immersed in the movie's atmosphere made by natural light of photography. Matteo Rovere did a very great job with cinematography to make it as realistic as possible.
