Synopsis

This haunting psychological drama, based on a screenplay co-written by Krzysztof Kieslowski of 'Three Colours' reknown, is the debut feature for German filmmaker Tom Tykwer. Philippa (Cate Blanchett), a British teacher living in Turin, Italy, has watched helplessly as her husband and friends have fallen victim to drug overdoses. To compound her desperation, the police - who are complicit in the actions of Turin's biggest drug dealer - have completely ignored Philippa's repeated offers of information. So, with the unexpected help of a sympathetic police officer (Giovanni Ribisi), Philippa decides she has nothing to lose by taking divine justice into her own hands...
