This is the kind of film that is arresting from the beginning. There are little answers given to the many questions that surface. Set in Italy this mysterious Ukranian woman with a secret past attempts to restore her life. It speaks about how far and ugly we can become when we want something so desperately. The continuous flashbacks seem disturbing but soon become integral to the story. The way suspense is utilized seems very contrived in this film because you know exactly what and how the director wants you to feel every time its used. For the most part though I did think the film was intelligent.
