Description

Milan, Italy 1980. A group of eccentric friends, art experts and collectors of rarities, decide to embark on an expedition to the Polesine to find an ancient painting that is said to carry a powerful curse. A few days after their departure, following accurate and detailed searches, they manage to find the mysterious painting buried in the marshes of the Po delta.

The painting is the portrait of a young girl, Angelica, who died centuries ago in macabre and gruesome circumstances. After being found, the painting unleashes a series of disturbing and inexplicable deaths. What secrets does the “Portrait of Angelica” hide?

A seance conducted by a medium could provide important clues, but be careful never to make eye contact with Angelica! On the other hand, as Ian Fleming wrote, ” You only live twice. Once when you are born and once when you look death in the face”.
