Villetta con ospiti
Twenty-four hours tell the story of a middle class family in a small and prosperous town. During the day, impeccable women and their husbands show off their virtues at the bar, the hairdresser, at a parish party, in a kind of obsequious ballet of good intentions. But as night approaches, the comedy takes on much darker hues and the veiled face of this small town suddenly appears full of pettiness and violence. The seven protagonists of this story, who represent the seven deadly sins, make their appearance with the utmost innocence. None seems particularly blameworthy, but after nightfall, they will all be guilty of a heinous crime.
Directed by Ivano De Matteo, 88 min.
