Review

In this moody, baroque thriller fromTurkish-Italian director Ferzan Ozpetek, Adriana, a medical examiner, meets a younger man, Andrea, during a party at her eccentric aunt’s garish apartment.They hit it off immediately, though their romance, a night of intense passion, is curtailed when Andrea later stands her up. While inspecting a corpse at work, Adriana notices a distinctive tattoo that reminds her of Andrea’s—at least as she remembers it. So begins a gripping metaphysical murder mystery, in which Naples plays a pivotal role of an additional storyteller, becoming a shadowy, mysterious labyrinth of desire and memory.

This film contains sexual situations. Intended for mature audiences only.
