Salvo review – an 'ambient thriller' where style leads substance

22 March 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

What this well-crafted Sicilian mafia drama lacks in dialogue it more than makes up for in atmosphere

Salvo is an almost wordless Sicilian-set drama about a mafia assassin who starts feeling protective about his latest victim's blind sister.

Shot in intensely atmospheric chiaroscuro by Daniele Ciprì, the film is less interested in storytelling and character than in exploring moody stylistics, with a sound design that's well worth periodically shutting your eyes to soak up.

Exquisitely crafted if somewhat academic – an "ambient thriller", if there's such a thing.

Rating: 3/5
