Well written Italian psychological thriller follows the trying adventures of a hotel chambermaid (Kseniya Rappoport) who gets mixed up with an ex-cop (Filippo Timi) and a home invasion/stolen art racket in the city of Torino. Director Giuseppe Capotondi keeps just the right amount of emotional pressure on Sonia the protagonist. The screenplay – by Alessandro Fabbri, Ludovica Rampoldi, and Stefano Sardo – is meant to be as tricky and elliptical as that of, say, Inception, but with a character depth that keeps us involved when the going gets murky (95 min.).
