Flight of the Innocent

  • Film

Time Out says

Deep in the Calabrian countryside, young Vito (Colao) stumbles across a shooting, the bleeding victim fleeing before an unknown assailant. When Vito returns home, his father is marked as the killer by a red blot on his shoes - and further shocks are to come. Later that evening, gunmen break into the farmhouse and slaughter the family. Pitched into the stuff of nightmares, Vito barely escapes with his life. Writer/director Carlei constructs a bravura, killer opening, but later - as angelic Colao imagines himself a surrogate son to the wealthy parents (Neri and Perrin) of an abducted boy - the plot becomes mired in sentimentality and wish-fulfilment.
