Storyline

In the suburbs of Rome, two disparate lives with only desire for vengeance and redemption in common find their destinies intertwined. Massimo's mind is plagued with images of his wife's violent death at the hands of a criminal gang involved in the production of snuff films. With every memory of the woman he loved replaced by unforgettable images of her horrific final moments, Massimo sees only one chance to take back his life: find the wealthy individual who commissioned the sickening murder - and make them pay. Barabba, a recently released convict, hopes to keep a promise he made to his father and start a new life with his brother, Spaccio, far from the violent world that they used to inhabit. Discovering that his brother is involved in the snuff gang, Barabba seeks to change things the only way he knows how: through violence and bloodshed. Shot with real ex-criminals and deprived people from the streets, INFIDUS is a drama about redemption and revenge that will uncompromisingly show... Written by Gareth Jones

De Santi goes arty-farty
21 March 2018 | by sdryweriSee all my reviews

I liked craziness of "Adam Chaplin" and since some internet people praise this as the directors ultimate masterpiece so I was mildly excited. All I expected this to be zero budget gore flick (what it is) but sadly they tried to do something more with this.

You did read the plot so no spoilers here: Angry ex convict decides to take revenge on snuff video ring he used to work to. You can pretty much guess the rest. All fine and good by me so far but then the "arty" thing kicks in. Guess the creators of this movie noticed there is barely any script or dialogue for that matter and they had to stretch this thing as long as possible. If you enjoy 5 minute long scenes of somebody making coffee, pouring water,rolling a joint etc. mundane things in slow motion, you are up for a treat.

Then they got all crazy with after effects/filters. Whole film is shuttered, "Current time" is black and white, violent flashbacks are some kind or black and red, some scenes are bit of mess of both and plenty of pointless shots of woman standing at the beach and footprints on the beach (ugh..) that looks like coloured 8mm film. (Those beach scenes got nothing to do with the "plot". Guess they are supposed to be someone's dream sequences of some character but you can't tell which ones.)

Acting is acceptable. They make big number how they casted actual ex criminals as actors on this. Guess to make this "grim" and "authentic" They could have casted random people from the street since most of got zero or minimal amount of dialogue. Therefore there is not much to act if you don't have to talk or zero character building. Just stand around besides gore scenes and quite badly made fights.

Now about the gore why we watch *beep* like this at first place: There is couple good scenes, some laugh out loud bad and plenty of boring, mediacore, uncreative ones. Thing that annoying that these guys can do decent effects for the money mixing practical and digital effects but the mess with after effects and colours ruins some of them and some are so badly done you can't help but think these after effects are there just to hide them.

I hate to crap over indie flick but this was just frustrating: There is clearly some creative people behind this and potential to be actual movie. If only there was a proper plot, some character development, suspense perhaps a surprise, proper pacing... You know. Script. I can't remember last time yawning so hard trying to watch this without fast forward around 60 minutes (out of 70 something). This movie sure feels least two times longer than it is.
