||Ivano De Matteo
(i nostri ragazzi)
In Italian / English subtitles
For audiences aged 12 and above
Forget last year's Dutch "Dinner" and chow down on Ivano de Matteo's "The Dinner," a significant improvement on the previous adaptation and a more nuanced critique of modern society than Herman Koch's eponymous bestseller. De Matteo ("Balancing Act") and co-scripter Valentina Ferlan snip away much of the novel's shambolic final quarter, making the story about two couples learning their teenage kids have cold-bloodedly murdered a homeless woman a sharper, more credible statement about today's culture of violence.
