2018, The Match Factory, 96 min, Italy, Dir: Damiano D'Innocenzo, Fabio D'Innocenzo

Twin brothers Damiano and Fabio D'Innocenzo earned a Nastro d'Argento award for Best Debut Director with this superbly crafted crime drama. Matteo Olivetti and Andrea Carpenzano star as Mirko and Manolo, best friends living on the margins of Rome who accidently run over someone. When they discover the man was an informer marked for death, the two use the incident to impress the local mafia … and wind up getting more than they bargained for. “What makes the film so fascinating to watch is that the psychology of the boys keeps bubbling to the surface organically, making it easy for audiences to understand the thought processes behind their (frequently not advisable) actions.” - Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter.
