Author Vitaliano Trevisan has taken Dostoevsky’s masterpiece and distilled a story of damnation and rebirth that portrays human passions and how they can degenerate and become addictive. Balancing drama and comedy, one witnesses the progressive wasting away of a young man (Daniele Russo) for whom roulette takes the place of the girl he loves (Camilla Semino Favro).
