121 ARCANA (1972) Guilia Questi's Supernatural Thriller
121 ARCANA (1972) Guilia Questi\'s Supernatural Thriller

Legendary Director Giulio Questi's Journey into Another Dimension

Original Italian Title: ARCANA

director: Giulio Questi
starring: Lucia Bose Maurizio Degli Esposti Tina Aumont Rosaria Dario Vigano Gianfranco Pozzi

Arcana is a combination of a Latin word (arcanus) and English (arcane), meaning 'secrets or mysteries.' In this case, arcana also refers to the twenty two trump cards in a tarot deck known as the Major Arcana. The story deals with a widow who earns her living as a clairvoyant in Milan; however, she has no real psychic power. On the other hand, her son does have unbridled supernatural powers and mom is determined to help him become a strong sorcerer. But he is an undiscplined boy who fails to grasp the real strength he possesses and, instead, unleashes a madness that affects everyone around him.

Brilliantly directed and edited by Giulio Questi, an industry player who worked with many Italian luminaries (including Federico Fellino and Francesco Rosi). However, despite his legendary reputation, he helmed only three feature films: the extraordinary DEATH LAID AN EGG, DJANGO KILL...IF YOU LIVE, SHOOT! and this challenging motion picture. Questi - who sometimes used the Elio Montesti pseudonym - died from natural causes in December 2014 at age 90.
