If you have yet to see Sonno Profondo, and/or Francesca, please rectify that right as soon as humanly possible. While not directly connected, they represent two grisly parts of a three part giallo trilogy being completed by the talented Onetti Brothers (not too dissimilar to Argento's "The Three Mothers"). This final entry will premiere May 12th at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival, under the "Upcoming Fantastic Films" section of their Blood Window program. Details below:
The film "Abrakadabra", directed by brothers Luciano and Nicolás Onetti, will debut on May 12th at Cannes Film Festival. It has been one of the 7 films selected to participate in the "Upcoming Fantastic Films" section of Blood Window.
"Abrakadabra" is the fourth film by the Onetti brothers and closes the "giallo" trilogy that began with "Sonno Profondo" (2013) and "Francesca" (2015).
"Dante, The Great", a prestigious magician, accidentally dies during a risky magic trick. Thirty-five years later his son Lorenzo, also a magician, presents a magic show in one of the most important theaters in the city. From then on, a series of murders will begin to take place and will attempt to incriminate him. Lorenzo must discover who and why seeks to involve him before it is too late...
