...hanno cambiato faccia (1971)

hanno cambiato faccia (1971, ITA) C-96m. ** D: Corrado Farina. Starring Adolfo Celi, Geraldine Hooper, Giuliano Disperati, Francesca Modigliani. Terminally odd horror drama about simple employee Disperati, who one day is called to the villa of his boss (Celi). There he learns that the man's name is really Giovanni Nosferatu(!) and that he is controlling most industries and businesses worldwide. Ambitious but unfortunately also pretentious drama, a misfired parable on the dangers of technology, this cannot really be put into the horror category. One-of-a-kind film is worth seeking out only for real cult movie fetishists. From the director of the pop-art mystery BABA YAGA (1973). English titles: THEY HAVE CHANGED THEIR FACE, THEY'VE CHANGED FACES.
