The Double Hour – 8.4

A cleverly plottd, Christopher-Nolan-like romantic thriller, this rare Italian entry also featured two of the most appealing actors of the SBIFFestival. I knew NAME TK must be a major star when she was shown having explicit sex with her bra on, but I was not prepared for the haunting quality of her face, which, post-festival, is the lingering image in my mind’s eye. One wondered how someone so attractive, even an immigrant from Serbia, could be a hotel chambermaid, but by the movie’s final twist all was explained. And unlike Inception, say, the flights of cinematic fancy seemed to make sense. (Other echoes: the male lead was a soft-edged Javier Bardem, and the mood conjured The American.)
