A star-studded heist film with a comedic edge, Golden Men follows a group of desperate men in Turin who attempt an armoured truck robbery.
Turin, 1996: Luigi (Giampaolo Morelli, also in this year’s 7 Hours to Win Your Heart) is a postal security van driver who loves beautiful women and luxury items. He dreams about retiring early and moving to Costa Rica, but when a new law is introduced making early retirement impossible, his plans are shattered.
Luigi and his best friend and ex-colleague Luciano (Giuseppe Ragone, Ignorance Is Bliss IFF17) formulate the perfect crime of robbing the postal security van. For their sensational coup, a reliable partner is needed and Luigi persuades his shadowy colleague Alvise (Fabio De Luigi, Put Nonna in the Freezer IFF18) to join them. But the dangerous world of crime is not for everyone…
Recalling a real 1990s robbery in Turin, Vincenzo Alfieri’s second feature displays the thin line between the model employee and a criminal mind, and shows how easily people fall victim to their own dreams.
