THE MAN FROM ROME

Suspense Drama

Writer-director: JAAP VAN HEUSDEN Co-writer: ROGIER DE BLOK

Status: International Premiere Tallinn Black Nights FF on Nov. 10th 2023

Filippo is an unusual mixture of detective, scientist, and priest. He comes to a small Dutch town, send by the Vatican to investigate, and probably debunk, a miraculous statue of the virgin Mary. Little does he know that he’ll find a grieving community that won’t allow him to take away their miracle. And an enigmatic, mute young woman – helps to crack down Filippo’s certainties about his calling as a priest and as human being.
