Storyline

In 1990, as a boy, Giulio was chased through the woods by two women after spying on them practicing witchcraft. Now a young film student in Turin, he watches his neighbors in the flats across from his third floor apartment, especially Sasha when she's naked or arguing with her mother. Giulio's girlfriend is disgusted with his voyeurism, but, after a murder occurs, Giulio is convinced that two relative strangers, just as in Hitchcock and Highsmith's "Strangers in a Train," have agreed to murder each other's bête noir. He follows his suspects, ends up with an intruder and a broken foot, and may be in real danger. Is he more than a peeping Tom? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

I don't think any fan of Argento or Hitchcock should miss this.
18 April 2006 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

Most enjoyable and suspenseful tale, featuring in the main elements of 'Strangers On A Train' and 'Rear Window', but also making reference to many of Hitchcock's movies. Much fun can be had spotting all the amusing/effective references without the ongoing tale being spoiled. There are at least two excellent sequences, one involving a moped and the other a bath, but although the pace may be a little erratic, the dialogue rather strange and the dubbing diabolical, this is as much fun for us as it must have been for Mr Argento. I'm not one of those that will talk of a 'return to form' because I'm just happy to enjoy what I enjoy without harping back, but I don't think any fan of Argento or Hitchcock should miss this.
