NAPLES IN VEILS
NAPOLI VELATA
2017, True Colors, 113 min, Italy, Dir: Ferzan Ozpetek

This enigmatic, intricately plotted thriller stars Giovanna Mezzogiorno as Adriana, a medical examiner who falls for a guy (Alessandro Borghi) at a party only to discover his corpse at the mortuary days later. As the police begin to focus on her, Adriana spots the young man in the subway - is it a ghost, or something else? Adding to the atmosphere are Gian Filippo Corticelli’s lush cinematography and Pasquale Catalano’s evocative soundtrack - the film’s titular city rarely seemed more beautiful, or mysterious, on screen.
