5 is the Perfect Number (5 e il numero perfetto)

Mon 2 March 2020

Artist and illustrator Igort (Igor Tuveri) has adapted his own graphic novel into a stylish, guns-blazing neonoir set on the rain-sodden mean streets of 1970s Naples. The great Toni Servillo lends weary gravitas to the role of Peppino, an old-school hitman and loyal footsoldier. When a family member is ambushed and killed, it is the start of a war that will be marked in bloodshed, betrayal and dishonour. From the Saul Bass-like opening titles to the Morricone-style music and nods to Sergio Leone, this is a very tasty, hugely atmospheric slice of Italian pulp fiction.

Also screening on Tue 3 Mar, 1.00pm
