Festival 2020 cancelled.

A rain-drenched Naples in the 70ties. The notorious Mafia hitman Peppino Lo Cicero is enjoying his retirement and has left the killing to his handsome son Nino. For his birthday, he’s bought him a beautiful Colt Cobra. Unfortunately, there will be nothing to celebrate today. Nino falls into a trap and gets a bunch of lead in his chest. Toto the Butcher, an old friend and colleague of Peppino, brings him the sad news. Peppino might be old, he hasn’t lost his killing touch. He sets out on a quest for vengeance that will spare nothing and no one. The streets of Naples will turn into rivers of blood. Igort, aka Igor Tuveri, is an internationally renowned Italian illustrator, comic-strip writer, writer and musician with a career spanning four decades. His very first feature, 5 IS THE PERFECT NUMBER, is an adaptation of his eponymous comic. This hyper-stylized film-noir, which brings to mind SIN CITY, can count on the phenomenal acting talent of Toni Servillo (LA GRANDE BELLEZA) as angel of vengeance Peppino Lo Cicero.
