Twice The Thrills - The Double Hour

The Double Hour (La Doppia Ora), coming from Samuel Goldwyn Films, hits theaters April 15th. Apparently it's a twisty-turny affair that has drawn comparisons with The Cryin Game and The Sixth Sense.

The Double Hours stars Ksenia Rappoport and Filippo Timi and is directed by Giuseppe Capotondi. It was originally released in Italy in 2009, but as is usually the case with foreign language films has taken its good sweet time getting a release in the States. It does look promising though as you will see from the trailer below.

Official Synopsis:
Guido (Filippo Timi), a former cop, is a luckless veteran of the speed-dating scene in Turin. But, much to his surprise, he meets Slovenian immigrant Sonia (Ksenia Rappoport), a chambermaid at a high-end hotel. The two hit it off, and a passionate romance develops. After they leave the city for a romantic getaway in the country, things suddenly take a dark turn. As Sonia’s murky past resurfaces, her reality starts to crumble. Everything in her life begins to change - - questions arise and answers only arrive through a continuous twist and turn of events keeping viewers on 
edge until the film’s final moments.
