When a beautiful young woman is found murdered in a provincial town in northern Italy, a surly police veteran (Toni Servillo in a nicely understated performance) is called in from a nearby city to investigate. He quickly assembles a list of suspects, including the dim-witted villager who discovered the body, a neighbor who's disarmingly cooperative, a hockey coach with a prison record, and the girl's layabout boyfriend. First-time director Andrea Molaioli shows great skill in moving the mystery along without planting too many red herrings; when the investigator mistakenly decides one suspect is the culprit, his error registers more as a character flaw than a plot device. With Fabrizio Gifuni and Valeria Golino. In Italian with subtitles. 95 min.
