Italian Film Festival Napier - You Came Back

15 Hardinge Rd, Ahuriri, Napier

Marco (Accorsi), and Anita (Serena Rossi, 7 Hours to Win Your Heart IFF20) discover that they are expecting a child. It is welcome news for Marco following the loss of Leo, his firstborn son with former wife Clara.

But the sudden arrival of the mysterious Perla (Valeria Golino, Euphoria IFF18) - the new owner of Marco and Clara’s old house – disrupts all of their lives. She claims to feel a strange presence and hear the voice of a child in the house, and Marco soon finds himself caught between his tormented past and hopeful future.

Based on the 2012 eponymous novel by Cristopher Coake, director Stefano Mordini transposes the American ghost story to moody Venice in an engrossing gothic drama about love, belief and the difficulty of letting go.

Accorsi is extraordinary.

Der Zweifel

Mordini is one of the few Italian filmmakers to capture the thriller soul of the lagoon city.
