Francesca is such a beautiful and bloody love letter to 1970’s Italian giallo films, it’s hard to believe it was made in 2015, such is the attention to detail and authentic 70’s style. A psychopath in a red coat and leather gloves is stalking the city, cleaning it of ‘impure and damned souls’. Detectives Moretti and Succo are tasked with solving these crimes, which appear to be linked to an unsolved case from many years ago. Francesca, the daughter of a renowned storyteller, poet and dramatist, was abducted fifteen years ago, but has now reappeared, leaving a trail of bodies in her wake.
