Description

This idiosyncratic feature debut by Alberto De Michele unspools at the intersection of documentary and fiction. ‘In my job, I infiltrate dark criminal worlds with an insider's knowledge. I “steal” stories from other thieves and use them for my own ends. This is without a doubt the biggest heist of my life to date,” says De Michele… Pasquale, an old crook who lost his fortune to a gambling addiction, plots his last major heist. For this he reunites The Wolves, a gang of Northern Italian showmen who help out as criminals. With the robbery of a money truck carrying 12 million euros, they hope to provide themselves with a good pension and pay their last respects to their clandestine profession. However, Pasquale is unaware that this is not the only robbery taking place…

‘Forget everything you think you know about Italian crime from films, books and series. This romantic image of the mafia is gradually peeled away in “The Last Ride of the Wolves”… [The story is] based on a true crime.’—IFFR
