THE DOUBLE HOUR
A spark between a newly-met couple is snuffed out tragically.
The Double Hour is an old fashioned kind of movie, kind of film noir. This one happens to be in Italian. Oh please, don’t give me a hard time about this. It is somewhat romantic, it is somewhat psychological. It is somewhat about second chances or first chances, and it is very well acted. The movie starts, which of course instantly gets me involved, in speed dating in Italy in Turin. And we’ve got a maid and an ex-cop sort of hook up with one another. I don’t want to tell you too much about it because as it unfolds, there are all sorts of twists and turns. And some of them are pretty obvious and some of them are pretty subtle. But I’d give this three and a half stars. I think you will enjoy it.
