In what could be the Italian equivalent to the Aussie neo-noir thriller THE SQUARE, is a new film from Giuseppe Capotondi's film THE DOUBLE HOUR. The film isn't the first you'd expect to see here at AITH, but it looks cool enough to give some run on this sluggish Friday. After all, the flick is being considered for U.S. remake, so you know it's good!
So here we are, with not only the official trailer for the film, but a cool new clip as well. All below, you know where to find it!
Apparently in limited U.S. release today, THE DOUBLE HOUR follows:
Guido (Filippo Timi), a former cop, is a luckless veteran of the speed-dating scene in Turin. But, much to his surprise, he meets Slovenian immigrant Sonia (Ksenia Rappoport), a chambermaid at a high-end hotel. The two hit it off, and a passionate romance develops. After they leave the city for a romantic getaway in the country, things suddenly take a dark turn. As Sonia's murky past resurfaces, her reality starts to crumble. Everything in her life begins to change - - questions arise and answers only arrive through a continuous twist and turn of events keeping viewers on edge until the film's final moments. THE DOUBLE HOUR, winner of Best Actress, Best Actor and Best Italian Film at the Venice International Film Festival, is directed by Giuseppe Capotondi.
Kseniya Rappoport, Filippo Timi, Antonia Truppo, Gaetano Bruno and Michele di Mauro all star.
