Diabolik is back on screens! This new adaptation of the legendary Italian comic book (memorably brought to the big screen in 1966 by Mario Bava) sees Luca Marinelli pull on the mask to play the gentleman thief Diabolik while Miriam Leone breathes life into the beautiful Eva Kant. This film tells the dark and romantic story of the first meeting between master thief Diabolik and Eva Kant, set in the fictional state of Clerville in the late 1960s. Inspector Ginko (Valerio Mastandrea) is on the hunt for the criminal, trying to stop his evil plans.
“Anything goes!” So cries the motto of Paracinema, the festival dedicated to films and genres outside the mainstream.
