The Habit Of Beauty (Directed by Mirko Pincell) ***
Tragedy brings the protagonists together through happenstance. They are: a famous Italian photographer, his ex-wife Elena, and Ian, out of jail and taken in to learn about photography.
The film is heavy, gritty and in many ways a tragic trilogy that resonates with its viewers. Based on events close to the director himself, the plot and acting combine to create a compelling if not moving statement about human nature and how it confronts the murky mess of living.
