Sanctuary

Luca D’Andrea gives us an intense thriller with an atmospheric South Tyrolean setting that, in some respects, defies genre pigeon holing. It’s part rural noir and part psychological page turner that has many familiar tropes but steers through the clichés with panache. Marlene Wegener is fleeing her callous criminal husband when she falls under the care of Simon Keller, a self-sufficient woodsman, living frugally in an isolated mountain hut. A shadowy criminal network and remorseless assassin are hunting her down. Can she survive? D’Andrea weaves in local folklore and vibrant cultural elements in this superior thriller.
