Synopsis

A man becomes obsessed by his own double in an Italian film from the early 1960s.
In the tradition of supernatural tales of possession, L'Assenza (The Absence) is a film about the fascination that cinema exerts on us - a fascination implicitly narcissistic, morbid, even dangerous. http://www.lassenzafilm.com
