Storyline

In the Sicily of the late 40's, two brother sculptors, tired of selling madonnas to the local churches, finally realize their dream and set up a Sicilian production company, thanks to the help of a local bishop. They start producing one box-office failure Z-movie after the other, all with terribly bad local non-pros as actors. Covered in debts, they finally have their great chance when a local nobleman obsessed by magic decides to invest all his wealth in the making of a movie about Cagliostro, just one year after Welles' "Black Magic". They hire a famous American actor (Robert Englund) and start shooting "The return of Cagliostro".. Written by satanetto

Strange. VERY strange.
8 September 2003 | by (Bologna, Italy) – See all my reviews

I cannot say whether I liked it or not. Or actually I cannot say whether it is a good film or not. I personally liked it, although I cannot say I enjoyed it. It is surely one of the most weird, bizarre, "screwed-up" films I have ever seen in my life. Nothing follows a logical flow, there is basically no plot and no actors, but you inevitably end up laughing about something... and you do not even understand exactly WHY you are laughing, sometimes. but you laugh. Completely absurd, nonsense and pointless, but so strange you will end up feeling strange as well.
