Directed by Álex de la Iglesia (The Bar; Witching and Bitching; The Last Circus; The Day of the Beast; Perdita Durango) from a screenplay co-written with Jorge Guerricaechevarría. Produced by Carolina Bang, Álex de la Iglesia and Giacomo Gagliardo (line producer).
The movie stars Caterina Murino, Cosimo Fusco, Silvia Alonso, Ingrid García Jonsson, Enrico Lo Verso, Nico Romero, Alberto Bang and Alessandro Bressanello.
In nature, there is an indissoluble link between beauty and death. The human being, indebted to his environment, imitates what he observes. Like mosquitoes drawn to the brightest lighthouse, tourists are turning off the light in the most beautiful city on the planet. The agony of the past decades has sparked anger among Venetians.
To stop the invasion, some have organised, unleashing their survival instincts. Our protagonists, a simple group of Spanish tourists, travel to Venice with the intention of having fun, oblivious to the problems that surround them. There they will be forced to fight to save their own lives…
Veneciafrenia will be released theatrically in Spain on November 26, 2021.
