Why Giulia's horror on the stairs?
After Ale kills his brother in the bath and Giulia finds him, she runs upstairs to Ale for help, but when she sees Ale she suddenly stops and stares at him with a wild expression and has a hysterical fit, falling back down the stairs.
She gave the impression she was looking at something horrible - I thought Ale had killed the cat in some hideous way (the cat had appeared in the previous scene and I was expecting it to happen) but all we were shown was Ale reclining in a dream-like attitude.
This didn't make sense to me. When Ale told her he'd killed their mother she didn't bat an eyelid, and she already knew about Ale's earlier plan to kill to them all so it can't have been a sudden shock and realisation that he'd done it. Neither had she shown too much concern for her other brother during the film.
Could it be that the thing she was horrified by was cut out, being too visually horrific? I suspect the cat was in the film to serve some ultimate purpose and can only imagine that Ale had done something ghoulish to it. What else would make Guilia so shocked?
