Antonio Manetti, Marco Manetti
Italy, 2021 – 134 minutes, Color

The first of the Manetti brothers’ stylized adventure series featuring the gentleman thief Diabolik begins with a late-’60s bongo-infused score and a chase scene through the beautiful northern Italy countryside. Master of disguises Diabolik always seems at least three steps ahead of the police.
