"Nothing is what it seems."
Guido (Filippo Timi), a former cop, is a luckless veteran of the speed-dating scene in Turin. But, much to his surprise, he meets Slovenian immigrant Sonia (Ksenia Rappoport), a chambermaid at a high-end hotel. The two hit it off, and a passionate romance develops.
After they leave the city for a romantic getaway in the country, things suddenly take a dark turn. As Sonia’s murky past resurfaces, her reality starts to crumble. Everything in her life begins to change - questions arise and answers only arrive through a continuous twist and turn of events keeping viewers on edge until the film’s final moments.
THE DOUBLE HOUR is directed by Giuseppe Capotondi.
