Ennio & Sergio

Two mafia hitmen are each others first love until one of them is ordered to kill the other.

Once upon a time in a sleepy Italian village, two little boys, Ennio Sentenza and Sergio Aaronson, grow up to be very close friends as well as fearless men of honor and talented hitmen. As time passes, both men lose sight of each other. However, when, many years later, Sergio strays and ends up upsetting the commission, their paths cross again. To restore order and maintain peace among the families, Don Santino requests Ennio to get rid of Sergio. Thorn between his sense of duty and his unrelenting bond with Sergio, Ennio sets out to do what is expected of him. Yet, Sergio knows his friend is coming, raising the stakes to life and death.

Director Statement

Ennio & Sergio is a "western meets gangster" tale. My ode to the magic duo Sergio Leone and Ennio Morricone. Same pace like the 60's/70's spaghetti westerns and I wanted the dialogues to be juicily dubbed like all the European movies did back then.
In my search for the perfect locations in Italy, I fell in love with the amazing landscapes of Sardinia. So I decided to shoot most of the scenes in Sardinia and some exterior scenes were shot in Belgium.
