Salvo Salvo

Fabio Grassadonia, Antonio Piazza / Italy, France / 2013 / 103 min

A mixture of realism and film noir, an all but silent excursion into the world of Mafia, modern love and miracles, the movie adopts the genre of thriller but presents it as an aesthetic and suspense-filled treat, in which old techniques seem fresh and new.

A henchman for the Sicilian Mafia, Salvo is solitary, cold-blooded and ruthless. When he sneaks into a house to eliminate someone from a rival Mafia clan, he discovers Rita, a young blind girl who powerlessly stands by while her brother is assassinated. When Salvo decides to spare her life, something extraordinary happens. From then on, these two beings – both haunted by the world they belong to – are linked together forever.

“We especially agreed on the idea of playing with different genres, not only in terms of story but also with its cinematic representation. The noir, first of all (the mise-en-scène of the house of Rita as a house of shadows is an intentional use of the genre and Daniele Ciprì is the Italian master of “chiaroscuro”); the love story; the black comedy provided by the lower middle class couple who protect the mafia killer’s day to day existence, acting as both guardians and jailors within their petty and grotesque world; finally, with the help of the epic and deserted landscapes of inland Sicily, we have toyed with spaghetti western settings and visual image.” (Fabio Grassadonia, Antonio Piazza)
