| The dark side of the love. Desire of possession, weakness and psychological games between lovers in a 2004 Verona pretty far from the one of Romeo and Juliet.
The dark side of the love. Desire of possession, weakness and psychological games between two lovers in a 2004 Verona pretty far from the Romeo and Juliet one's. Garrone strikes, in spite of the bitter critics he received during the 54.Filmfestival in Berlin, where the film was presented. A majestic photography and a deep care of particulars make the film a small esthetical masterpiece, which make oneself forget, the strong north-east Italian accent of the two main characters. There is a lot of work behind the two main actors, but sometimes you have the feeling they are a little too shallow in comparison to the deep thoughts they do. The theme of anorexia is a sort of taboo in our society, but Garrone deals with it with a lot of maturity and sometimes irony, which bring the audience even deeper in the darkness of the story, until the wonderful monologue which close the curtains. Provocative, but real, Garrone is a tough director.
