On behalf of Samuel Goldwyn Films, we’re excited to release a brand NEW CLIP from THE DOUBLE HOUR, a multiple Venice Film Festival award-winning thriller that Film Comment raves is “expertly crafted… throws a new curveball every few minutes”. Starring Fillipo Timi (VINCERE) and Ksenia Rappoport (THE UNKNOWN WOMAN), who light up the screen with “charismatic, nuanced performances that give an emotional resonance far beyond the surprise twists” (Steve Dollar, The Wall Street Journal). THE DOUBLE HOUR will be in select US cities on April 15, 2011!
Official Synopsis: 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, winner of Best Actress, Best Actor and Best Italian Film at the Venice International Film Festival, is directed by Giuseppe Capotondi
