3224 LIFF19: The Invisible Witness

Australian premiere

When slick and successful businessman Adriano (Riccardo Scamarcio, Loro LIFF18) wakes up next to his dead mistress in a resort hotel room, he becomes the obvious chief suspect. He selects Virginia Ferrara (Maria Paiato, An Almost Perfect Town LIFF17), a veteran criminal attorney who has never lost a case to defend him. The two only have three hours to prepare the case, discredit a key witness, and find the evidence confirming Adriano’s innocence.

Largely told in flashback, director Stefano Mordini’s taut thriller cleverly recreates the days that lead up to that terrible night as the guilt-ridden Adriano, still in love with his wife, tries to break off his affair while on a clandestine trip. As more facts are coaxed out by Virginia, the characters' motivations begin to blur. The Invisible Witness builds intrigue and exhilarating tension up to its astonishing finale which proves no one is ever quite who they first seem.
