With typical intelligence and complexity, director Marco Bellocchio weaves three stories around the politically hot topic of euthanasia, turning a real-life Italian national drama into engrossing narrative for sophisticated audiences. Refusing to offer easy answers or perspectives, Dormant Beauty is directed in such a way it doesn't need to take a clear-cut position on the question, because like all the director's work it has no concern with convincing people of anything, but a great deal of interest in illuminating contemporary Italian society.
