Black Souls

(Anima nere)

Italy, France 2014
In Italian / English subtitles
109 min
For audiences aged 12 and above


A trio of brothers with three different outlooks converge on their ancestral town, where a blood feud threatens to turn into all-out war, in Francesco Munzi's Black Souls. Calabria's mafia, the 'ndrangheta, have international reach, but their vendettas play out at home, allowing Munzi to illustrate urban-rural divides while showing how alliances and lethal questions of honor disturbingly survive in areas where options have never been a government priority. Carefully constructed, allowing each scene to develop, "Souls" is set to be this year's mafia pic.
