"Weaves the love story with stylistic ingenuity and masterful emotional restraint." —Slant

"Critic's Pick! Impressionistic, extravagantly poetic." —New York Times

Winner of major prizes at the Berlin and Turino film festivals, the hauntingly beautiful debut feature from Pietro Marcellow (Lost and Beautiful, Martin Eden) interweavestwo love stories: the 20-year romance between a Sicilian tough guy and a former junkie whom he met in prison, and a poetic reverie of the Italian port town of Genoa, depicted in all its mysterious, fading glory. The Mouth of the Wolf masterfully combines documentary with fiction and melancholy home movies from the past century with poetic images, sounds, and music of the waterfront today.
