Storyline

1997: A student of folklore named Andrea Roberti hypothesizes the possible link between the horror literature of H.P. Lovecraft and the dark folk tales of the Po Delta, a mysterious and remote part of northern Italy. 2002: One of the directors of the film comes across a manuscript in Montecatini (Italy) which may have belonged to the American writer. This journal, dated 1926, describes travels in Italy through the Po Delta in search of inspiration in the form of local folk stories: the Filò Tales. 2004: A small, tough crew of international filmmakers is put together with the help of David, a New York actor, to make a documentary on the finding of the journal and on the links between Lovecraft and the Po Delta. If the manuscript really did belong to Lovecraft, it would be an extraordinary discovery. As soon as they begin, however, the filmmakers find that Andrea Roberti disappeared in mysterious circumstances many years before, his car found abandoned on the banks of the Po. The crew ...

I have just read a comic about this film (is that normal that people do comics for a film? Isn't it the other way normally?) and watched the faked documentary at Pesaro festival. It was quite a bit a hadn't seen anything like that. In the tradition of "Blairwitch Project" you see a documentary that is at least in it's main theme, the mysterious happenings in the Po Delta, a fake. But you also knew that in Blairwitch. Once you accept this you enter a film full of atmosphere and passion for the stories and the spirit of the greatest author of horror stories that ever existed. In the end the focus goes from the research more to the tensions in the documentary team, caused by all these strange and frightening things they explored. A wonderful idea and a great movie.
