Review: The Double Hour

A love story disguised as a thriller

An Italian debut feature which cleverly plays with the genre format and was launched in competition at Venice, where it won the Volpi Cup for Best Actress 

“Thrillers are a fun genre to make and see”

Interview: Giuseppe Capotondi • Director

“Thrillers are a fun genre to make and see”

The debut film took a risk with genre and won over Venice audiences with an ironclad screenplay that blends thriller, love story and paranormal horror, and a nod to David Lynch
