Also known as Janara, this Italian film is all about the mysterious disappearances of the children of San Lupo, in the province of Benevento in Italy. Some of the people believe that it has to be a pedophile, while others blame a legendary witch.
The folklore and stories of the witches of Benevento date back to the 13th century, with the main belief being that this town is where the witches of Italy choose to gather. Even the town’s football club, the Benevento Calcio, have a logo of a witch on a broomstick.
Marta and Allessandro have come to collect Marta’s inheritence, but are not prepared for what they will find in the village, which is populated by plenty of strange folk who have no interest in outsiders. If this movie was shot in the U.S., I would have been bored, but I tend to forgive Italian film everything.
