I enjoyed it very much. A thrilling drama
31 October 2017 | by pinkvision-19153See all my reviews

This movie will conquer the viewer because of its realism, and how it builds up to tension and mystery. It is worth seeing this feature for the paced story, realistic drama, good tale, and for the careful direction. By the end of the movie the audience is shocked because of the non predictable end, but satisfied that they saw a worthy realistic story which can really happen to anyone. You can also notice that is a independent movie, with few characters, maybe it has been shoot in Kentucky or something. The photography is not great, in my opinion is a little bit too dark, but it was OK, anyway. Very good cast and even if protagonists are not famous as Bruce Davison, Daryl Hannah and Tom Sizemore, they did well, especially the female which really had a very strong impact on the public for her performance. She had to deal with a mute role and she resulted very credible. There where moments when she broke my heart. Maybe I would have chosen for another type of husband, talking about the actor in the lead male role. I didn't feel pity for him as I supposed to do, anyway. I don't know which was the budget of this film, the scenic design lacks a little bit but is a very good harmony, anyway. I have recently seen the last movie of this director, Carlo Fusco and I think that he is getting really better with this movie, he combined arts with commercial.
