Colour from the Dark

Synopsis: Pietro and Lucia live on an isolated farm with Alice, Lucia's younger sister. Poor farmers, they live tilling the soil. Pietro is a good worker and a strong man who, unlike his three brothers, is not at war because of a deformed knee. Lucia is a beautiful and reserved woman dedicated to her family. Their life is peaceful and good, in spite of the hard work. One day, while drawing water from the well, Pietro and Alice accidentally free something from Earth's womb. A strange and alien color flashes underwater, at the well's bottom, then disappears. From that moment on, inexplicable events start happening all around the farm, and by night the surrounding vegetation glitters with a sinister glow. The color soon takes hold of the whole farm, and dwelling inside Pietro and his family's minds, it brings them into its sick world of pain, blood and death.

a little water.

When was the last time

A long time ago ...

The last was the front

I am very worried about him.

I hope not


The Strangers ...

I hope that at least

Luigi is still alive.

Lord, protect it ...

bring him home safe and sound.

Anna ...


Sorry, Grandpa.

Do not be worried.

Tomorrow I will go to the house to Pietrro

Thank you.

I set the table ... and then take you

Teresa to eat something.

Better to wait until dark,

You scared me ...

What's wrong with you?

Come inside

if you find here

If you see me here

Where are you going?

Stay inside.

You have been very good to me,

but I can not stay here longer,

if something bad happens too you,

never forgive me.

I hope that Alice can

sleep well tonight.

I hope so ...

I am very tired.

I was going and coming in

How's your knee?

Not bad ...

only bothers me a bit.

If you feel better tomorrow.


What are you doing here?

Go back to the house.




It's time to wake up, little sister.

Come on, breakfast is ready.

Pietro's waiting downstairs.


Remember what I said Pietro.

Hold your breath ...

run as fast as you can and

your fear will disappear.

Alice, we will do together.

Let's go.

Hey, Pietro.

Any news?

We are fighting in Africa,

from the British.

The last two men

already left the village.

Any news of his brother, Luigi?


Damn war.

How is Anna?

Well ... is concerned,

as you are

Do not wait to Luigi

return from the front.

Tell Anna to not lose faith.

I will.

German ...

Fly across the area ...

patrol the river bridges.

They are still looking for?

No ...

are no more Jews in the village.

All of them were deported

or fled.

Or were murdered.

I'd better go home ...

Anna may have made the dinner.

I will return in a few days.

Thanks for coming, Giovanni.

You're welcome, my friend.




There is much work

to be done here ..


Thank God.

Lucia ...

- You scared me.

- I'm sorry.


I can bend it!

- And it hurts!

- What happened?

I do not know ...

- Was suddenly.

- My God is a miracle.

Wait, I have something

to show you.

Look ...

much more in the garden too.

god bless the food

we received,

and thanks for the graciousness

give us this food ...



You say?

Did you hear?


I heard her speak.

Let's say again ...


Please ...

not the press now.

Yes, you're right.

My God, I can not believe.


For years I've been waiting

Alice to talk but ...

It's a good sign.

Now we have to leave it alone

and keep hope.

In a month she will have 22 years ...

and she still acts like

it had 10 years.

Do not beat yourself, dear.

Yes, but you is childish

should not fear it.

She is strong,

can defend itself alone.

Day after day we worked together in the field
