''Retour en Italie'' - ''La légende du Roi Crabe'' by Alessio Rigo de Righi and Matteo Zoppis



''Retour en Italie'' - ''La légende du Roi Crabe'' by Alessio Rigo de Righi and Matteo Zoppis

Italy, nowadays. Some elderly hunters reminisce about the tale of Luciano together. Late 19th century, Luciano lives as a wandering drunkard in the Tuscian countryside. His lifestyle and constant opposition to the despotic local prince have turned him into an outcast for the community. In an ultimate vengeful move to protect (from the lord) the woman he loves, Luciano commits the unforgivable. Now an unfortunate criminal, he is exiled to Tierra del Fuego. There, with the help of ruthless gold diggers, he seeks a mythical treasure, paving his way towards redemption. Yet, little but greed and madness can grow on these barren lands.

''Retour en Italie'' is a new cycle of films, born from the collaboration between the Italian Cultural Institute of Montreal and the Cinéma du Musée, dedicated to the discovery of the new production of Italian cinema by offering the latest films by directors who are already part of the history of cinema such as Taviani and Tornatore; and the works of a new and sharp cinema like that of Frammartino and the Alessio Rigo duo of Righi and Matteo Zoppis.
