Following follows the first season.
Costanzo’s harrowing adapted vision for Ferrante’s novel has a purity in its breed that is soaked in hot lava of emotions that melts you down in its specificity. Without any whatsoever obligation, the honesty that peels human nature here is frankly inedible and at times cringe worthy to encounter it on screen. The violence and the bold uncertainty that it is brimming with, takes your breath away. The adapted screenplay is a force to be reckoned with. The elaborative narration is layered and thought provoking that pushes the viewers every now and then. The three dimensional characters are well crafted and they are very grounded. The absence of control over your life does communicate with the viewers. And it is those characters that makes sure you stick by that feeling till the end of the ride. It enrages you and elevates the momentum of the sequence. Personally I prefer its horrors than the drama. I prefer it when the characters are scared and angry, the mob mentality that is overpowered in here by a smart mature being. And even though the characters make mistakes and aren’t always ethically on mark, they are definitely more human than we usually see. The relationship between the two lead characters is eerily honest, it isn’t your generous textbook material, it feeds on the environment that was fed to it, the language is pretty much transparent. The performance by the cast is hauntingly beautiful along with its brilliant execution, the novel is sincerely respected on each frame.
