Riccardo De Filippis,
The incredible true story behind the most controversial Italian court cases in recent years. Stefano Cucchi was arrested for a minor crime and mysteriously found dead during his detention. In one week's time, a family is changed forever.
A story set in the 90s and in the outskirts of Rome to Ostia, the same places of the films of Pasolini. His characters, in the '90s, seem to belong to a world that revolves around hedonism.... See full summary »
In 2011, Ostia is the subject of a giant real estate project intended to make the harbor of Ancient Rome the Las Vegas of today. But the place soon becomes a battlefield where criminals and politicians either join forces cynically or fight each other ruthlessly. The infernal showdown will last seven days, claiming many lives.Written by
I went into this movie with a friend having only read the summary and we were not disappointed. The movie, although over two hours long, did not feel as such and was intense and gripping from start to finish.
The movie is set in Rome over 7 days and shows how the paths of people from various walks of life come together in an all too catastrophic and tragic way. This includes corrupt politicians, a hooker, and warring mafia gangs. The movie plays out like a snowball effect,starting with one event descending into the tragedy to become.
The movie does not shy from graphic sex scenes and excessive violence, but it is not done in poor taste. In fact, it actually makes the film so much more potent. The acting is of course superb, and the actors really embody their roles. Production is excellent from all aspects.
Definitely worth a watch, especially in a theatre.
