Italian NEW WAVE
Deeply impressed with the films high level of sophistication. The opening scene is operatic in that it sets the mood and outlines visually the key components and themes for the remainder of the film. The visuals are very tight and evocative of Pedro Almodovar. Desiree Giorgetti is unforgettable as Lia. And, the appearance of Alejandro Jodorowsky is a nice touch. The storyline has a great emotional arc. The soundtrack songs of Patrizia Laquidara are perfectly woven with the storyline. The casting and editing are pitch perfect. Extremely surprised and pleased with the directorial debut of Immesi and Brazzale. They are at the forefront of what looks to be a 'New Wave' of Italian cinema.
