Paolo Sorrentino's gripping psychological thriller probes the dark secret harboured by middle-aged Italian loner Titta Di Girolamo, who has lived for eight years in an anonymous Swiss hotel. Elegantly dressed, he impassively spends his days in the lobby of the hotel bar, observing the guests and staff with cool detachment. But his icy demeanour cracks when he begins to talk to attractive barmaid Sofia, and the terrible truth about Tizza's concealed world begins to unravel. Featuring masterfully restrained performances from Toni Servillo and Olivia Magnani, 'The Consequences of Love' is a tightly plotted, stylishly executed thriller that marks Sorrentino as an exciting and original filmmaker

The Consequences of Love is one of the best films I have seen this year. It focuses on an anonymous businessman who lives a very inactive, solitary existence in a Swiss hotel, and who, we discover little by little, is not in control of his own life and fate as much as he appears to be.
This is director Paolo Sorrentino's second film, but it looks like it has been directed by someone with the confidence of years and years of filmmaking. Several scenes are extremely slowly paced, tracking gradual movements in the frame, and examining textures and settings so that they are quite reminiscent of 'Art' directors such as Antonioni and Tarkovsky. the look and pace of the film also reminded me strongly of the Turkish film Uzak, and if you saw and enjoyed that one, then this is a must too.
This DVD release has a great, sharp picture and includes two small 'making of'documentaries which are, for once, worth watching, and a trailer. The film on its own would be a necessary purchase for anyone who enjoys European cinema, and as for the ending..... you won't forget it in a hurry!

"The Consequences of Love" is an unusual film about a taciturn and aloof Italian businessman who has been living alone in a Swiss hotel for several years. Underneath his surface greyness he hides a number of dark secrets which account for his unhappiness. Starved of friendship and love , he forms a romantic attachment to an attractive waitress in the hotel bar and from that spark of love , he becomes energised to embark on a high risk mission to reclaim his life and break out of his "virtual prison". "The Consequences of Love" can prove to be dangerous indeed. The acting, characterisation and cinematography in this film are all first rate and the plot is intriguing. The ending to the film is one of the most memorable I have seen for quite some time.

Format: DVD
This is a beautifully shot film, with enchanting camera work and supreme editing. The film flows at a constant, graceful yet purposeful pace, interspersed with moments of speed & power. The geographical setting is captured wonderfully and all adds to the powerfully pensive performance from Tony Servillo as the taciturn Titta Di Girolamo. Like a Shakespeare tragic hero, Di Girolamo has a fatal flaw and surely he cannot be allowed to enjoy the benefits of his criminal past? But will the challenge come from Olivia Magnani's captivating barmaid Sofia or his former employers?
The film loses its way a little toward the end, when it almost changes genre, and that's the only reason that I'm not giving it 5 stars.
It is however more than worthy of 4 stars and is a clever, thoughtful and visually stunning story about redemption, liberation and love.

Middle aged Italian loner (Servillo) has lived in a Swiss hotel for 8 years. He spends most his days in the cafe playing cards, and observing the guests with a scientific detachment.

One day (out of character) he decides to speak to an attractive bar maid, and then the disturbing secrets of his inner world come to light. Soon his world is turned upside down.

This movie is a slow-burning masterpiece. Easily the best movie I have seen in 2006.

Format: DVD
This is a thoughtful and evocative examination of loss, longing, and despair: loss of a life once lived; longing for an unattainable girl; and despair over an uncontrollable destiny. Chain smoking Titta endures his lonely existence in a quiet Swiss hotel with a stoic glumness until his long-suppressed desire for the hotel's bargirl is forced into the open. 'Perhaps sitting at this bar is the most dangerous thing I've ever done,' says Titta, prophetically. Then, in the third act, as Titta's actions bring everything to a head, he finally takes control - with dramatic results.

The movie's pacing is carefully, if a little self-consciously, managed and the direction and cinematography are always engrossing. It also boasts a marvellous soundtrack, segueing artfully from the Nymanesque to thumping electronica. Great stuff!

Definitely one to watch.

Format: DVD
To say almost anything about the film is to risk spoiling it for the viewer. It is a film that moves slowly, building up its pace until a number of key decisive moments. It reminds me of a martial arts form where the pace increases as the exercise continues. If you like frequent and regular action then you may find it too slow, but it is not just some arthouse special where no-one does anything for 120 minutes. The acting is excellent without the frenetic approach of some Italian films, the photography and setting (Switzerland) are both wonderful. The director plays fair with the viewer - in the end everything gets an explanation.

Format: DVD
This 2004 film written and directed by Neapolitan film-maker Paolo Sorrentino is (for me at least) a mightily impressive and highly creative watch. Here, we became acquainted with Sorrentino's vibrant and visually stylish approach in this mysterious tale of Toni Servillo's middle-aged (apparently) retired businessman, Titta di Giralamo, who is ensconced in a remote Swiss hotel and whose dark back-story Sorrentino reveals in a series of slow-moving, oblique, but compelling, narrative twists and turns. Sorrentino's visual style, co-created with regular cinematographer Luca Bigazzi, is simply stunning, comprising a mix of static, but beautifully framed, shots, unusual (often moving) camera angles and viewpoints, plus a now trademark number of fast-moving interludes (typically accompanied by a loud musical backdrop).

Indeed, The Consequences Of Love begins with one such mesmerising Sorrentino shot, as a (painfully) slow-moving walkway moves towards the camera, with Lali Puna's exquisite Scary World Theory playing in the background. Once installed in Titta's adopted hotel home, Sorrentino throws in a host of idiosyncratic characters and filmic touches, including an elderly couple of failed gamblers who are still intent to conning their fellow card-players (including Titta) and a glamorous receptionist, Sofia (played by Olivia Magnani, grand-daughter of Anna) who Titta (initially) tries to keep at arm's length in order not to involve her in his nefarious practices.
