The Unknown Woman

Giuseppe Tornatore (Malèna, The Legend of 1900, Cinema Paradiso) returns with this rough mystery/thriller about a Ukrainian woman named Irena (Ksenia Rappoport) who worms her way into the lives of a young, affluent Italian family for unknown purposes. There's some mean and nasty backstory here involving prostitution, white slavery and all manner of brutal behavior, but Rappoport keeps the noirish, often far-fetched story from flying off the handle with her nuanced performance. 118 minutes R.
