Excellent Italian murder mystery/biting social commentary based on the US novel
“Human Capital” (2013 release from Italy; 110 min.) brings the story of two families, whose fates are so different yet intertwined. As the movie opens, we see a staff person bike home late at night after having worked at a big event of some sort. We also see a speeding SUV and the SUV appears to accidentally hit the biker, but doesn’t stop. Whoa! Who was that? What just happened? After the opening credits, we are told we are “Six Months Earlier – Chapter 1 – Dino” and we get to know a number of characters: there is Dino, the real estate guy whose daughter Serena is dating Massimiliano, the son of a hedge-fund manager. Dino convinces the latter to let him buy in, but soon regrets doing so when the market tanks. To tell you more would spoil your viewing experience, you’ll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.
Couple of comments: first, this is the big screen version of American author Stephen Amidon’s acclaimed 2005 novel of the same name. How often do you see a big screen adaptation of an American novel that is made abroad, rather than in the US? Director Paolo Virzi transposes the story from Connecticut to Northern Italy very nicely, and along the way adds other elements to make this his own story. Second, the movie works on different levels: there is the immediate question as to what exactly happened at that hit-and-run late night accident (?). Then there is the social commentary about today’s society and the influence of money on people (keep in mind: this is Italy, where they have been going through a Great Recession for YEARS now). The movie is split into 4 chapters, and we rehash more or less the same events from different people’s perspectives (Dino, Carla, Serena). It’s a technique that has been used before, but when executed well, as in this movie, it elevates the movie, as you discover new details in each new perspective of the same events. Last but not least, the movie features a great ensemble cast (there are about 7 or 8 key characters to keep track of). Bottom line: this is a movie that caught my attention from start to finish.
This movie is the May, 2015 release of Film Movement’s on-going DVD Of the Month club. No idea why a 2013 release only now gets exposed to US audiences but better late than never I suppose. As always, the Film Movement DVD comes with a number of bonus materials, including an okay “making of”, but far better is the bonus shortie. This time we get “Job Interview”, an excellent 9 min. shortie from Germany about a woman (Lisa) being interviewed by another woman for a job. Just watch! Meanwhile, “Human Capital” is a worthwhile addition to Film Movement’s ever-growing library of foreign and indie movies. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Four Part Disharmony
Knowing nothing about this other than it featured Valeria Bruni Tedeschi that was all that was needed to sell it to me. I’ve known, admired, and probably been a little in love with Valeria for several years on the strength of her performances in things like Marion Vernoux’s Rien a faire and here, once again she is back to what she does best, playing fragile and vulnerable and beautiful with it. By pure coincidence I got hold of a DVD of her third film as writer-director-actress Un Château en Italie on the same day I watched this so I got a double shot of Tedeschi. Although I went for Tedeschi the film wasn’t exactly chopped liver; okay, derivative, with more than a touch of the Rashomon’s about it as a tragic accident is seen through the eyes of several protagonists with the truth that has eluded us revealed in the final segment. Along the way there are swipes at Ponzi schemes in all but name, capitalist societies, the dark side of Italian life just for starters. Certainly holds the interest.
