Black Souls (15)

Black Souls (15)


The story of three brothers, the sons of a shepherd, close to the ndrangheta and of their divided soul.

The critical consensus

The result is a measured, intelligent thriller that grows more gripping with each passing moment.

****(*)Allan Hunter, The List, 26/10/2015

The tone is pseudo-Sopranos at times, but the oppressive ambience is grippingly sustained.

****(*)Patrick Peters, Empire Online, 26/10/2015

Men glower menacingly at each other in this stripped-down drama of a Calabrian family caught up in an endless cycle of violence.

***(*)(*)Leslie Felperin, The Guardian, 29/10/2015

The plot may seem familiar from dozens of other Mafia movies but what is original here is the film's mournful tone and its absolute refusal to glamorise violence in any way.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 29/10/2015

Francesco Munzi’s tale of a Calabrian mob family at war is sombre and spare.
