What Would You Risk For Love?

The star power of Cate Blanchett (The Shipping News, The Lord Of The Rings) and Giovanni Ribisi (Gone in 60 Seconds, Boiler Room) propels this luminous and intensely haunting motion picture from the acclaimed director of Run Lola Run and Winter Sleepers. Philippa (Blanchett), a British teacher living in Turin, Italy, has watched helplessly as her husband and friends have fallen victim to drug overdoses. To compound her desperation, the police - who are complicit in the actions of Turin's biggest drug dealer - have completely ignored Philippa's repeated offers of information. So, with the unexpected help of a sympathetic police officer (Ribisi), Philippa feels she has nothing to lose by taking divine justice into her own hands. A probing exploration of the modern world and its moral choices - you'll be mesmerised by Philippa's transformation from grieving widow to wanted fugitive on a journey through retribution and redemption, innocence and crime.

An enjoyable movie to watch but at times I felt that it was disjointed within the scenes. If you can overcome this then you will enjoy.

I enjoyed this film, even though it was highly implausible and the story unlikely and a bit weak. The cinematography was very good, especially the aerial shots and sharp images. Cate's acting was excellent.

Wow, another excellent movie by Cate Blanchett, she never fails to deliver.


Even Cate Blanchett couldnt lift this movie into some interesting. Same old cop stuff, just in a different language

A beautiful and strange story that unravels slowly. Not especially memorable but watchable nonotheless.

Normally love Cate Blanchett but I don't think this movie was one of her best. Giovanni Ribisi was annoying and the film got bland.
