‘The Italian Key’ Trailer Delivers A Sumptuous International Fairy Tale

By  · Published on November 18th, 2011

The Italian Key is the first feature film from writer/director Rosa Karo, and it tells the story of an orphan girl who inherits a key that unlocks a fantastical villa in Italy (hence the title) and, wait for it, her family history as well.

The romance looks like it was stamped on the front of a postcard, but the trailer doesn’t deliver much of a hint as to its substance. The tone seems to fit perfectly with tinkling piano keys, but it also has a hint of brightness to it. What does that mean? That it’s got potential.

Regardless of what it might hold on the inside, it’s definitely got a pretty package.
