In their gorgeous follow-up to Salvo, co-directors Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza build a dark, mesmerizing fairy tale around the true events of a horrific 1993 Mafia kidnapping. When rich kid Giuseppe mysteriously vanishes from his Sicilian village, his classmate Luna (who happens to be in love with him) is the only one brave enough to rebel against the town’s implicit code of silence. Stylishly (wide)lensed by Luca Bigazzi—with shades of Guillermo del Toro—this gripping fable seamlessly blends the real with the surreal.
In Italian with English subtitles.
