Take Five was directed by Guido Lombardi in 2013 and presented that same year at the Roman Film Festival. In the cast we find Peppe Lanzetta, Salvatore Ruocco, Salvatore Stiano, Carmine Paternoster, Gaetano di Vaio and Esther Elisha. The story revolves around a strange gang formed by a depressed legendary gangster, a boxer disqualified for life, a marriage photographer, an ex-robber who had recently survived a heart attack, and a plumber with the vice of game who one day finds himself in a bank's safety vault in order to fix a problem with the city's sewer and gets an idea…
It's a cross between Reservoir Dogs and Big Deal on Madonna Street shot with great care by Guido Lombardi and featuring a score by Giordano Corapi, who created a soundtrack with a vague western flavor that's synchronized masterfully with the images. With beautiful themes sung in dialect and in French, the score, which is gifted with a highly melodic gradient and counterpoints the story in a compact way, surely deserves recognition both linked to the images and separated from them.
