Beautiful scenery, art, and architecture abound in this mysterious -- if unbelievable -- look into the life of a woman struggling with a traumatic past. Naples and its traditions are at the forefront of this convoluted story. The city is portrayed through a lavish and sensual arts culture, while the eccentric characters point to a deep-rooted belief in superstitions and the supernatural. Those who are familiar with these cultural elements will relate to Naples in Veils at a deeper level. But knowledge of Naples isn't a requirement. Rather, to understand Naples in Veils, viewers must accept far-fetched plot turns. And though Naples is a central element to the story, the connection between the city and Adriana ends up feeling forced.

The plot becomes more and more complicated as it goes along, and only some aspects are tied up by the time the movie is over. Some viewers may be intrigued and swept away by the mystery, but others will feel like it's trying too hard. Overall, Naples in Veils seems a little too mysterious and obscure for its own good.
