Lacks cement despite its qualities
I watched this on Rai last night, after reading the few user reviews on IMDb at that time.
For starters: The comments had made me expect something less. I found the film kind of more interesting than existing reviews suggested. However, nothing written about it seemed wrong.
The features of this movie are interestingly double edged. It suffers from lack of continuity as the conventional / linear kind of storytelling has been shattered way too much. However, the discontinuity was stylish enough to bear with the mood swings in expectation of something notable and fulfilling.
An early action scene (which, of course, was a flashback like most other scenes) surprised me as it looked like the adaptation of some pages from Diabolik or Satanik (Italian comics with criminal lead characters) as our cop jumped from rooftops in a snow mask chasing a guy. (I guess they used yamakasi stuntmen for that.) It was an early signal to how graphically dynamic and experimental this was to become despite the story which did not really require much physical or visual playtime.
I got excited as Beatrice addressed the main problems with our lead character by using some strong-but-legit words. For the real-time scenes weighed lighter than the flashbacks overall, even such interesting moments were losing their impact. It felt like I was watching a very long music video that relied on jumpcuts.
There were way too many locations and characters for what seemed to be the basic story. That approach should have been disturbing, and it kind of was, but only to an extent. There was something almost childishly sincere about this overconfidence on the part of the filmmakers, something that made me say “go on, keep telling…”
I found myself being entertained, though not in the way I was expecting. The power points of the movie were shaping up separately, like in stuff totally irrelevant to what would really matter.
For example, Claudia Gerini was at the top of her game as she acted the part of the prosecutor who was kind of sick all the time, something common with overworking career women, courtroom monologues cut by sniffles and coughs etc. That strangely functioned to provide depth to her character, but her character did not really matter with respect to what the movie was really about.
As some other commentators have underlined, one undeniably major problem with the film was how the younger versions of the three characters failed to resemble them. And I noted something extra weird: How come the judge (Alessio Boni) had aged so much more? I mean, their younger versions were at the same age range, but Boni was made to look at least 10 years older than the other two in the few real-time scenes. Was that a signal to how being a responsible and decent judge would affect one’s biology in contrast to being a corrupt cop or a failure of a lawyer? Really? Was that worth messing with Boni’s normal looks which would make him more compatible with his friends?
As for the conclusion: That would have been impressive had we not seen Usual Suspects or Primal Fear.
With such well-known and much imitated films on its back, “Non sono un assassino” fails to be shocking or groundbreaking.
Still, interesting and entertaining enough. Especially if you go the extra mile to find meaning in details, like, if you consider those scenes with the bug as Kafka references.
As it was ending, I decided to give it a 6. But then came the very final scebe. The one in which the loser/lawyer/poet opened his door to whom we would expect the least. Having that particular thing as the final note of the whole experience softened and changed the overall mood of film so unexpectedly and so much that, I decided to award it with an extra point.
That, and that alone, is why I am giving this a 7.
P. S. “Arrivederci amore ciao” by Michele Soavi remains the most striking Italian crime fiction. Even remembering it gives me the chills. Check out that underrated gem.
High Intrigue – Predictable Resolution
Francesco is a cop whose success knows no boundaries. Getting promotion after promotion he also manages to maintain a family and personal life balance… until it all goes to hell. His wife leaves him and he is on trial for the murder of his best friend. His only hope for salvation is another buddy from old times – a lawyer with stalking issues, the last man in Town who wants to be in his corner. As the case unravels, old wounds are opened and when the truth is revealed no one will go unscathed.
I AM NOT A KILLER is a strange beast. The murder mystery premise is underwhelming, but the movie drags you in with its labyrinthine patchworkie structure. Switching between the different timelines it paints with broad strokes the picture of life-long friendship between three boys. What could go wrong?
The movie is well acted and superbly shot, its main problem being the script. The two hours of high expectations do not deliver a satisfying ending. The reveal is predictable and so simple, the question comes – why was the movie made in the first place, as every intriguing question and detail was doomed to disappoint.
Don’t get me wrong, I AM NOT A KILLER is not a bad movie, it just never delivers on its promises.
