D'Agostino a murky mystery on a Greek isle
D'AGOSTINO - something volcanic is erupting at the caldera.
A man living an unfulfilling life in London, with a corporate job he hates and a fiancee to whom he's indifferent, finds new meaning behind a closed door on a Greek island in the creepy “D'Agostino.”
Director Jorge Ameer (who has a small role in the film, and appears Thursday at a screening at the Roxie) builds a bit of tension in the odd, quiet thriller, which at times seems like a travelogue featuring gorgeous images of Santorini.
Heading on a transatlantic voyage at sea from an Italian lab to America, D'AGOSTINO is the story of a human clone left for dead at the shores of Santorini Greece. This lost cargo, commissioned by wealthy individuals for organ tranplants, is abandoned as the freight cannot be recovered. Allan Dawson has recently inherited his grandmother's island estate. He's in a loveless relationship with his common law spouse Sylvia Krystel. As he finds this interesting freight, what follows is a macabre tale of self realization as Allan proceeds to set himself out of his sedentary existence to mold his latest discovery into a new best friend.
