THEY CALL ME JEEG
LO CHIAMAVANO JEEG ROBOT
2015, Uncork’d Entertainment, 112 min, Italy, Dir: Gabriele Mainetti

Gabriele Mainetti’s feature directorial debut gives a distinctive Italian twist to the superhero movie. On the run through the slums of Rome, small-time crook Enzo (Claudio Santamaria) winds up in the Tiber River, where contact with toxic waste gives him extraordinary powers. Though Enzo is content to use his new strength to break into ATMs, an attractive young woman (Ilenia Pastorelli) and a maniacal crime boss (Luca Marinelli) have different ideas. Winner of seven David di Donatello awards.
