The Invisible Witness
A businessman must explain to his lawyers how he came to be found in a locked hotel room with his dead partner, whose body was covered in money, in this Italian thriller.
The business (Riccardo Scamarcio) "selects Virginia Ferrara (Maria Paiato), 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."
