Films: Angels of Evil
Angels of Evil
Director: Michele Placido
Released: 24th October 2011 (DVD & Blu)
Angels of Evil is the biographical true story of Italy’s most notorious gangster and Milanese bank robber, Renato Vallanzasca.
The movie starts in 1981 in a maximum security prison, where Renato Vallanzasca (Kim Rossi Stuart) rules the roost. He strolls around his dirty prison cell in his pants and gets served a bowl of filthy looking rice with a cockroach crawling around in it. From scene one, we can tell this isn’t going to be a pretty looking film. Whilst beating up prison guards, we hear his voiceover saying he ‘never could stand bullies’ and because of this, his first job was freeing circus animals from their cages.
He got into crime from an early age, stealing heaters and other electrical equipment to sell on. Because of his downright thuggery, he gets sent to a juvenile detention centre, where he eventually becomes the “boss of the Comasina”, which is a district in Milan.
