Salvo review

Salvo's rescue mission...

After assassinating her brother, inscrutable mafioso Salvo (Saleh Bakri) keeps blind girl Rita (Sara Serraiocco) hostage, unable to kill her for reasons kept, like his white t-shirt, extremely close to his chest.

Although it begins with a striking shootout, writer/directors Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza’s debut explores over-familiar territory and suffers from fiercely ponderous pacing.

With no context to help us care about either character, and Bakri barely raising an eyebrow as he grumps around like a gloomy Terminator, the result is an exercise in muddy, moody subjectivity.
