Matthew Lickona 6 p.m., Nov. 17
Russian actress Kseniya Rappoport has a lovely, vulnerable intensity as Sonia, a chambermaid in Turin, Italy, who falls for a sensitive ex-cop (Filippo Timi, who was Mussolini in Vincere). Her soulfulness can’t save a moody jam-up of various genres utilizing robbery, two suicides, two loves, a dating club, brain injury, dreams, a creep, a coma, hot sex, ghostly visions, and a live burial. Good acting and Italian sensuality are buried in this deck of wild cards, the feature debut of video-rooted director Giuseppe Capotondi. 2011.
