12. Don’t Look Back (2009)
Sophie Marceau and Monica Bellucci star along together in this mystery thriller that encounters a rather strange and bizarre storyline, in which fantasy meets the psychological. Jeanne (Marceau) is a mother and wife to whom a peculiar sensation of change begins to infiltrate her being. She slowly feels her body transforming into a stranger, while her surroundings remain in the normality their lives seem them to be. It’s a photograph that connects this character to a woman (Monica Bellucci), who she believes will clarify the mystery she is stuck in. With two incredible performances, Bellucci is entirely in character and gives this movie a balanced and right-fitting result.
11. Brotherhood of The Wolf (2001)
Going back into the 18th Century, we are set in a mysterious and obscure ambience, where the Gevaudan province is under attack by an unrevealed beast that’s been killing the French land’s inhabitants. The hunt for the truth, namely, finding who’s behind this bloody massacre, brings the characters of this plot on a wild and exhilarating adventure. Bellucci is, in this story, located in the midst of a brothel, where she plays Sylvia, a prostitute practicing the powers of witchcraft. At first. She turns out to play a more significant part in the plot as it might have seemed at the beginning. A mix of different genres and perhaps a little too chaotic at times, this movie still took home a couple of awards and nominations and is a final burst of costumed action worth a watch.
