The Predators

I Predatori

Greek premiere

The members of the Vismara family, running a gun shop in Rome’s impoverished outskirts, are outspoken fascists, nostalgic of Mussolini’s regime. On the other side, we meet the wealthy Pavone family, highborn, and intellectual gentlefolk, living in the capital’s most exclusive district. These two worlds will collide through a series of improbable events, tinged with black humor and grotesque sarcasm. At the end of the day, they are both predators in the jungle of life.
