Three years after the death of Frank's wife a mysterious woman appears. As their attraction grows Frank struggles with reality and his loss. He tries to start over not knowing his choices could lead him to his own downfall.
"Delusion" tells the story of Frank Parrillo, three years after the death of his wife he receives a letter from her encouraging him to move on with his life. With a little help from his nephew Frank decides to move on and get on with living. But the past doesn't want to let him go that easily, Frank is always thinking back to his time with Isabella, but things get worse when he starts having strange nightmares and a woman suddenly appears as well as a mysterious man who seems to be following him.
Frank is on medication so is all of this something his fragile mind has made up or is there something more sinister at work? He decides to go visit a psychic who warns Frank of a dangerous woman but is she too late or can Frank figure all of it out before it is too late?
"Delusion" gets your attention right from the start, but getting a letter in the mail from your wife three years after she died would get anyone's attention. That is how the film starts off and it is a terrific opening scene that sets the stage for what is to come. After that the film is one big mystery as we follow Frank on what seems like a nightmarish journey as he tries to move on with his life. We the audience stay glued to the screen as we wait and wonder what is going to happen next. Is all of this real or is Frank slowly losing his grip on reality? The mystery gets solved slowly as the film moves along, it doesn't give it all away early and by doing so the tension and suspense just build and builds leading up to the film's chilling and shocking climax.
Writer/Director, Christopher Di Nunzio has only gotten better as a film maker with each movie he makes. He has also assembled a terrific crew which he goes back to each time including Cinematographer, Nolan Yee who does amazing work each and every time. Chris Esper's work as director of photography on the second unit for the Flashback scene is quite impressive as well. The cinematography is beautiful to look at and the sound is just as impressive.
And then there is the cast of "Delusion" which takes the film up another level. The entire cast is terrific including, Jami Tennille, Irina Peligrad, Kris Salvi, Justin Thibault, Carlyne Fournier, Renee Lawrie and Jessy Rowe but the film clearly belongs to David Graziano who plays Frank. David continues to shine as an actor and here he gives an emotionally charged performance that stays with you long after the film is over. I can see him winning a lot of festival awards for his performance.
As always I am not going to give away plot details here so not to ruin the film for those waiting to see it. "Delusion" has been submitted to a number of Film Festivals so stay tuned to hear when and where you can check it out. To keep up on its progress I suggest liking the film's Facebook page HERE.
"Delusion" is a terrific film from a very talented film maker, it is also a lot of things including, a drama, mystery and even a horror. An intelligent and clever film hat grabs a hold of you right from the start and it keeps you engaged and invested all the way to the end. I enjoyed this film very much and I see it being a big festival favorite so do not miss checking it out as soon as you can.
