THE STORY

 
Elon Coretti is the only son of Sauveur Coretti, one of the mafia bosses in  South of France. Suffering from bipolar disorder, his mood fluctuates between manic and depressive phases. He has a hidden and incestuous relationship with his half-sister Julia, Sauveur's daughter from a first marriage. Sauveur completely conceals his son's illness and practices extremely violent and maladaptive mentoring.
 
Antone, Savior's right-hand man, who considers Elon to be his own son, is a little more moderate in his learning of the gangster's trade. He has an almost "fatherly" approach and is much more pedagogical but he remains loyal to his boss and his decisions. Serena, Elon's mother, does everything she can to protect her son by sparing him the collateral damage of a gangster life.
 
While the Coretti clan reigns supreme on its lands, small Albanian dealers are increasingly involved in drug trafficking and various activities on this conquered territory. Sauveur decides to make an example by organizing an almost military assault on the Albanians' site and murders without mercy, all the people who are there.
 
Elon, who is trying to please his father, participates "in spite of himself" in this massacre. Frank, a drug addict and corrupt cop, who has been working for the Coretti family for years discovers that Antone had an affair with Serena in the past...

The universe of Roads of Fear is in its staging as in its narrative structure, attached to genre references to which the echo of synthesizers will bring a touch sometimes granular, sometimes smooth, thus directly referring to the writing of Vangelis for Blade Runner, painting a futuristic city so realistic, leading the viewer between the huge structures of this world of science fiction sometimes black, sometimes bright. Or referring to Badalamenti's compositions for Lost Highway or Mulholland Drive, which here comes to marry the image and the sound, by making a revealing intertext of it.
 
In all three cases, the heady synthetic melodies bathe the viewer in a unique and delimited universe. This is partly the path followed for Roads of Fear, adding acoustic soloists in the foreground, bringing a touch of intimacy whose melodies will allow to enter the heart of the emblematic characters of the film's universe, caressing them on the skin, revealing their raw emotions to the spectators.
In any case, the colors of the 80's, this timeless nostalgia, and the sound immersion, will be there.
