Unique, classy, surreal mystery-thriller
on 8 December 2011
Interesting and entertaining 'mind game', dream-like, moody mystery, as
a woman can't account for several lost days of her life, or why so many
people at a resort she's never visited seem to know her.
She's also haunted by very odd black and white dreams where an
astronaut is betrayed and left to die alone on the moon.
The film is slow in parts, and some of the big twists are easy to see
coming, but it is beautifully photographed by Vittorio Storraro, and
eschews the gratuitous violence and awkward sex of most of the Italian
thrillers of the era.
This doesn't feel like its trapped by any formula or rules. And the
acting is pretty good for a dubbed film.
Not in the class of films like 'Don't Look Now" or "Vertigo", but gets
points for trying to be and doing so in a classy way. I'll be
interested to see this again.
