Comments: This is a foreign film and subtitled from Italy.
A four-year-old boy disappears. Then five years later Tommi returns.
The movie starts quite. Then things start to happen. Some people begin to think he may not be Tommi. The film does drag on in between little incidents occurring. There are some emotional moments. We do get to see how hard this situation is all his family.
The movie is very low key. You find yourself hoping something will happen. When things really pick up and start happening they certainly do and are unexpected. You will never see this coming.
The actors really shine in the last part of this movie. You will feel sorry for all involved.
This movie is not so much a horror one as a psychological thriller. The build up is slow but when it gets there the film delivers a stunning ending that will leave you speechless.
