HUMAN CAPITAL (Il capitale umano)

The destinies of two families are irrevocably tied together after a cyclist is hit off the road by a jeep in the night before Christmas Eve. --IMDB

This Italian drama - with a touch of mystery thriller - was very well done and intriguing. The movie starts out with an accident where someone knocks a man from his bicycle and drives off. We then see the same events leading up to that moment from three different people's perspectives. It's well crafted, tightly scripted, and well-acted. It's an excellent critique of the way society differentiates between the rich and poor and the (de)valuing of people on the basis of their monetary worth.
