Strange social drama
27 October 2016 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

This is not a thriller nor a mafia movie, in the line of what Pasquale Squietteri did before. We follow here the faith of an ordinary citizen, a worker in a big factory, family man, father of a girl, who has a mistress and who is the witness of a murder. An ordinary man who also seems in search of himself, we don't know exactly why...And that's the point. It's really a strange movie, with a music score looking sounding a drum beat most of the time; a feature which the whereabouts are very hard to follow or even describe. Except I found it as a sort of analysis of the Italian social way of life. That's my own point of view. You can also watch it as a kind of documentary. If you Watch it closely, it seems depressing. I am surprised that no one commented it, because it was aired on Rai channel.
