Naples In Veils / Napoli Velata.

The entrancing art, music, and architecture of the city of Naples form a sumptuous backdrop for this mystery-shrouded thriller from Farzan Ozpetek.

Giovanna Mezzogiorno stars as Adriana, an esteemed medical examiner who meets a handsome younger man, Andrea (Alessandro Borghi) during a Neapolitan ceremony involving femminielli at her eccentric aunt's garish apartment.

They hit it off immediately, though their romance is curtailed when Andrea later stands her up and then disappears. So begins a gripping metaphysical labyrinth of desire and memory.

"Lush, moody... A gluttonous feast of Neapolitan art and culture." - The Hollywood Reporter

This film is presented by La Bella Italia.
