Runtime: 83 mins

From the director of multi-award-winning Mafia drama ANGELA, comes this red light thriller about a young police inspector who, while investigating the homicide of a girl, finds himself drawn into the torrid and ambiguous side of Roman night life.

Luigi Lo Cascio (GOOD MORNING, NIGHT) stars as homicide detective Luca, assigned to investigate the murder of Valentina. To the world, she was a hard-working student, yet she had a hidden life that involved sex clubs and prostitution. Luca becomes obsessed with the victim and the seedy clubs she frequented and is inexorably drawn into this netherworld of couples searching for humiliating kinks. His morbid fascination begins to pull him down this creepy path too and, under the guise of searching for Valentina's killer, Luca slowly lures his girlfriend Veronica (Anna Mouglalis) into the world that's enveloping him...

Punctuated by David Lynch-esque visual interiors, DARK SEA also features a remarkable soundtrack by top Asian composer Shigeru Umebayashi (MY BLUEBERRY NIGHTS).
