Directed by Giada Colagrande, Aprimi II Cuore follows the obsessive and sometimes incestuous relationship between sisters Caterina (Colagrande) and Maria (Natalie Cristiani). Caterina, 17-years-old and shy, loves the arts and takes comfort in listening to music while her sister, a prostitute, entertains her nightly host of clients. Living in the apartment becomes harder with each passing day, as Maria is only allowed to leave to go to dance class. Despite Maria's efforts, Caterina falls for her

The first-time filmmaker lacks the stylistic assuredness to put the material over, and the mostly amateurish performances are no help.
Do they have Cinemax in Italy? Because surely that's where this filmy, flimsy fantasy belongs.
Giada Colagrande wrote, directed and stars in this atmospheric but baffling drama about a protective, possessive prostitute.
After 90 minutes of bad dialogue, limp scenes, interjected cuts to paintings of the Madonna (sooo subtle!) and no emotional resonance whatsoever, you're more than ready for this weak Heart to stop.
