Wastedland !
Francisco (Raul Bova), stuntman and double of a star (Tom Grasso) in hollywoodian movies of B series, come recalled to the fatherland, Italy, when he learns about the dead of his parents, victims of a fire caused from a short circuit. He arrives to a shiny-southern italian small-town (Sicily) for the funeral. After seeing his friends, he meets a young girl, Maria (Bianca Guaccero), who lives in his parent's ruins, and tells him that the parents have been victims of an attack warp from the two local mafia clans, Capeggiati from the violent Macrì (Giancarlo Giannini) and the Tonino, the so-called friends of Francisco, for the supremacy in the zone. With the aid of Maria and her friend a black valet, Francisco will revenge his parents and call blood-tragedy on his birth-town.

Fabio Segatori is very known in Italy for his awesome shorts movies : Wolves (2001) about cannibalism and Beasts(1996) about a killer persecution. His first film is a pursuing of the thinking of the body in our world : forgotten at the beginning (stuntman who loses his parents), hurted at the end (by the violence and the love). Segatori confronts the body to his environnement by the use of hegelian dialectic (the city and the desert) and he comes to a very terrifying conclusion : evil doesn't die at the end. It is in us. But you can't forget all the elements of a action movie code (jokes, love story, friendship, action, music) that Segatori uses well, but to philosophically. You feel it : it's an european action movie. Let's wait for the next movie filmed in U.S.A.
