Film Fest Gent - Pericle il nero

The screenings of 'Pericle il nero' will not be subtitled in English as previously announced, but in French.

A Neapolitan mafia enforcer makes a big mistake and flees to France. "Mordini's adaptation of the '90s hit noir novel 'Pericles the Black' falls somewhere between the surreally cruel Italian criminality of 'Gomorrah' and a cuddly Inspector Maigret yarn set in the scenic Belgian countryside." (The Hollywood Reporter)
