Imagine - The Place

Intimate and low-key film with supernatural overtones grabs your attention from the very beginning and doesn't let go.

A quiet man sits at the table of a restaurant. He listens to people who want to improve their lives and offers them a deal: after they complete a task, their wish is granted. He seems in complete control until several tasks start to interfere. Intimate and low-key film with supernatural overtones grabs your attention from the very beginning and doesn't let go.

Like in his earlier Perfetti sconosciuti, Italian filmmaker Paolo Genovese limits action to one space and lets people confront who they are in the course of extended conversations. Its premise is the type of moral allegory that we find in local legends across the whole world. Superbly acted by Genovese's regulars, it stands as an intriguing example of oral storytelling within film. If it's true that the book is still the most immersive medium, since it exploits our imagination to the extreme by withholding stimuli, The Place does something similar. It makes us wonder, visualize and anticipate based on words, facial expressions and people's behaviours.
