“Goodfellas” turns 25-years-old in 2015, but mob life continues to inspire even more movies. “Black Souls” is another tale of the underworld, and today we have an exclusive clip the award-winning movie where it seems every move is a dangerous one.
Directed by Francesco Munzi, and starring Marco Leonardi, Peppino Mazzotta, Fabrizio Ferracane, Barbora Bobulova, Anna Ferruzo, and Giuseppe Fumo, the film is based on real events and follows the three Carbone brothers, Luigi and Rocco, who are engaged in the family business of the international drug trade, and Luciano, who has remained behind herding goats in their ancestral town of Africo in the remote Aspromonte mountains on the Ionic coast. When Luciano’s 20-year-old son Leo shoots up a local bar owned by a rival family, his reckless actions reignite a longstanding blood feud and set off a tragic chain of events that violently grinds toward an inevitable bloody showdown for all involved.
“Black Souls” won the AKAI International Film Fest Award, Fondazione Mimmo Rotella Award, Pasinetti Award, and the Schermi di Qualità Award at the Venice Film Festival in 2014. The film opens in New York on April 10th and in Los Angeles on April 23rd. Watch below.
