Tornatore, best known for Cinema Paradiso, has meticulously crafted a story that's at times so raw it hurts to watch. Its action blends piercingly lit flashbacks and dream sequences with a gray, prosaic present in an unnamed Italian city.

The Unknown Woman falters when it falls into exploitation and fatal contrivance.

The film has major problems blending the strong social theme of exploitation and white slavery with Tornatore's noirish screenplay, full of holes and improbabilities.

Plays like a cross between Hitchcock and tabloid feminism, a mix that shouldn't work and doesn't.

A spellbinder with a lot of Hitchcock touches and an Ennio Morricone score to match.

a movie that's almost impossible to get out of your head.

Un intenso y atrapante thriller con algo de melodrama que bien podra haber dirigido Brian de Palma.

Tornatore's instincts for crafting a stylish, nonlinear thriller are indisputable. But he's not yet a master, and at times you'll feel cheated even as you anticipate the next disquieting scene.

[An] exquisite mystery thriller.
