LIFF18 Naples in Veils

MA15+ 113 MIN
Watch Trailer


The entrancing art, music, and architecture of the city of Naples form a sumptuous backdrop for this mystery-shrouded thriller from Ferzan Ozpetek. Giovanna Mezzogiorno (also in Facing Windows) stars as Adriana, an esteemed medical examiner who meets a handsome younger man Andrea (Alessandro Borghi, I Was a Dreamer LIFF17) during a party at her eccentric aunt’s garish apartment. They hit it off immediately, though their romance is curtailed when Andrea later stands her up and then disappears. So begins a gripping metaphysical murder mystery, in which Naples becomes a shadowy, mysterious labyrinth of desire and memory. The latest in Ozpetek’s sumptuous oeuvre was a box-office hit in Italy last year, and was highly decorated across Italy’s major film awards.

Please note that while the trailer above does not include subtitles, the film will be screened with English subtitles.
