Paolo Cumerlato in Primo Amore

Primo Amore

2005 NR

Used to seeing perfection in the jewelry he buys and sells, choosy Italian goldsmith Vittorio (Vitaliano Trevisan) can't settle on a mate -- until he meets the beautiful Sonia (Michela Cescon) and believes he's found the ideal woman. But in Vittorio's eyes, Sonia's one flaw is her weight, which he reduces through cruelty and torture. Matteo Garrone directs this taut psychological drama that shrinks its leading lady to a shell of her former self.
