Jinga Films and Matchbox Films announced the UK release of Nicolas Onetti’s Giallo homage Francesca which will be released on Bluray, DVD, and VOD on July 3rd, 2017.
A psychopath stalks the city cleaning it of “impure and damned souls”. Moretti and Succo are the detectives tasked with resolving these “Dantesque” crimes. The secret is eventually revealed by Francesca, a little girl who was abducted 15 years ago but has now reappeared.
Like Barberian Sound Studio, Amer and The Strange Colour of Your Body’s Tears, Francesca is an authentic and stylish celebration of the Italian Giallo crime thrillers of the 60’s and 70’s made popular by Mario Bava and Dario Argento.
Francesca received its World premiere at Cannes where it screened in Blood Windows and has since become a genre festival favorite with screenings at FrightFest, Sitges, Fantasporto, Fantaspoa and Morbido.
