Francesca Unveils One Seriously Killer Poster


It’s not difficult to get ridiculously excited about Luciano and Nicolás Onetti’s upcoming thriller Francesca. The filmmakers are beyond talented, and if you need proof, I wholeheartedly implore you to check out Sonno Profondo (aka Deep Sleep). These guys aren’t simply paying homage to giallos, they’re delivering the real deal. I apologize — sometimes I have a tendency to gush.

Thankfully, we’ve gotten our hands on the latest poster for Francesca, and it’s lovely. But before you decide to gawk at the colorful artwork down below, let’s bring you up-to-speed on the film’s plot:

It’s been 15 years since the disappearance of little Francesca, daughter of the renowned storyteller, poet, and dramatist Vittorio Visconti; and the community is stalked by a psychopath bent on cleaning the city of “impure and damned souls.” Moretti and Succo, questioned by the ineffectiveness of the police force, are the detectives in charge of elucidating the mystery surrounding these “Dantesque” crimes. Francesca seems to have returned, but she is not the same girl whom everyone knew…

Francesca is set to premiere at the Sitges Film Festival this October, so if you’re in attendance, definitely check it out. That way you can tell me how good it is and I can get insanely jealous and cry about it. Meanwhile, let’s take a look at the new poster together, shall we?
