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

An experiment, with plenty of ideas and few coherence
23 March 2004 | by (Venezia, Italy) – See all my reviews

It is difficult to find innovative approaches to filming and directors who have the courage to explore new routes and who do not feel obliged to respond to the public. Cipri' and Maresco fortunately are not like this, and are convinced that cinema can be made without following the standard manual that you learn at a film school.

Their cinema cannot be described, but it is a new experience, where you are taken and transported together with incredible characters and an intense form of human passion.

It does not follow a coherent route, but imagination is the main vehicle of their cinema. Art is expression, not reproduction of standards, and these directors are walking in that direction.
