Sette opere di misericordia (De Serio, 2011) - Locarno 2011 Co
A Romanian woman kidnaps a baby and holds an old man captive in his own apartment.
A rather brutal account of a "family" encounter. There is some fantastic photography. The film is extremely quiet and it needs quite some time to sink in. There were some things that went on a little bit too long, and I wasn't sure why she brought the baby back in the end - distracted by terrible head ache.
Acting very good. Main actress Olimpia Melinte very good screen presence. (maybe too good looking for this kind of film?) I would like to see what she does next.
