VINE VOICEon 23 July 2009
Colin Firth plays a character whose wife is killed in a car crash in the US when she is preventing from seeing the road ahead by her young daughter's game. After the funeral he takes up a teaching post with his two young daughters in Genoa. The youngest daughter sees visions of her dead mother whilst the older daughter starts to live a teenager's lifestyle with parties, boyfriends etc. There are some good views of the old streets of Genoa and a good classical soundtrack, as both girls learn piano, but apart from this little to recommend it. The story doesn't really go anywhere and nothing much happens. The direction has a slightly rough art-house feel to it and many of the scenes are poorly lit. There are many scenes where you think the tension is building towards some unexpected event but nothing at all happens. It is described as very similar to 'Don't look now', but would certainly have been livened up by a homicidal dwarf in a red cloak, but alas, all we get here are anticlimaxes. I assume the main theme is the psychological effect upon the younger daughter versus the supernatural, however this was too dull for me. The ending is rather abrupt. If you like a film with a strong story line with something actually happening you should avoid this.
