A Film with strong echoes of Nicolas Roeg's Don't Look Now. Both of these films share the theme of family moving to a Italy for a new start after a loss of one of their family members. They both also uses the architechture and locations to create a mood of suspensene unease, but where Nicolas Roeg succeeded with his 70's cult-calssic, Michael Winterbottom fails quite badly. Genova is a film that just do not know where to go or what to be. Sense of dread is there, but it feels like it is only there for leading us for a wrong tracks. This is not a thriller, it is more of a story about family in the state of a emergency and Winterbottom do not allow us even to get close to these characters. End result feels just cold and distant.
