Donato Carrisi is one of the most celebrated contemporary Italian crime writers and his novels have won critical acclaim and commercial success. Carrisi made his directorial debut movie three years ago, titled The Woman in the Fog, an perfect part murder mystery/thriller that stood out due to its nice story and the remarkable, cohesive and absorbing plot. When I learned that he would shoot his second film, based again on one of his novels, the titular Into the Labyrinth (original title: L'uomo del labirinto), I was very excited and overeager to watch it with the first possibility I would get, even though I was not familiar with the book. Unfortunately, this is not a film equal to the previous Carrisi flick and its main flaw is the jumbled plot, which in parts it is also implausible and farfetched, that overshadows the film's merits such as the Lynch-like colourful cinematography and the nice cast. Toni Servillo, who was also the protagonist in The Woman in the Fog, holds the basic role of Bruno Genko, a personal eye whose main business activities have to do with dept collecting and related stuff. Nevertheless, over fifteen years ago, Genko took over a very necessary case, that of the abduction of a young girl, Samantha, who has actually been found after a mysterious anonymous call to the authorities. Samantha is kept in the hospital and when she wakes up from her coma, she finds beside her Dr. Green, played by the veteran American thespian, Dustin Hoffman. Dr. Green is a criminal profiler and says Samantha that he is there to support her remember features regarding her abduction and support her identify the perpetrator. At the same moment, Genko is drawn once again in his old investigation as he is determined to search out what happened to Samantha and who is the kidnapper.Thus, the film is narrated mainly through Genko's mission of view and there are a several interjecting sequences from the hospital where Dr. Green is struggling to receive the right words from Samantha who is drugged and mostly unable to recollect a thing from the last fifteen years of her life. The only thing she can remember is a zone that she calls "The Labyrinth", a maze inside which she had to enjoy wicked minigames to entertain her sadistic captor. The director tips to possible unreliable characters and the audience could be reluctant to believe any of the main protagonists of the movie as nothing is what it seems in Donato Carrisi's universe. What struck me most in this film and determined my final -reticent- assessment of it was that there was a trouble with the pacing, manifested as a lack of any sense of continuity in the storyline and the main plotline. At many times during the film's running time I got a sense of disruption in the stream of narration that was both confusing and disturbing. The climax is almost non-existent and the final twist(s) is foreseeable and anticipated. Perhaps this is also a trouble in the novel, but even so, the director had the occasion to show his storyline through a fully various medium and could be more attentive with major aspects such as the tempo and the continuity of his narration.Apart from the above, Into the Labyrinth, has some great qualities having to do mainly with the cinematography and the performances by the actors in both basic and helping roles. The photography of this movie is exceptional, reminiscent in that sense of The Woman in the Fog, with the prominent test of the red and black colors that make a grotesque atmosphere that is aligned with the movie's script. Toni Servillo gives once again a solid performance as the persistent, moribund personal investigator who is obsessed with the cast and will do anything to solve it. Dustin Hoffman doesn't have so much screen time, but he is also befitting in the role of the mysterious Dr. Green. I am an ardent fanatic of Italian crime movies and perhaps that's why I everytime set my expectations a bit higher than normal. Into the Labyrinth is not a first-rate thriller and cannot be compared with the superb, Woman in the Fog. If you are a fanatic of Donato Carrisi's body of work, you shouldn't miss it while fanatics of Euro-crime would certainly wish to add this movie in their record.
