What's the film about?
An intense relationship between a violent, immature father and his misfit, lonely son. A post-modernist noir? A dark rewriting of Red Riding Hood? A father/son love story? All these definitions apply to this disturbing, moving picture, whose key strength ultimately resides in its deeply humanist core. Outstanding performances, especially by Filippo Timi (Vincere), and impressive camerawork help creating an unsettling, nightmarish atmosphere.

...if you loved Salvatores' I'm Not Scared, you definitely need to watch this.
