The Grand Bolero

Logline: In this Covid-era Italian thriller, Roxanne, a gruff middle aged pipe organ restorer struggles to control her obsessive attraction to her new 20 years old mute assistant.

 

Review: “The Grand Bolero is visually striking, especially during scenes in the woods, while the classical music enhances whatever emotional ambiance the scene calls for. It’s crazy to think that this is Fabbro’s first feature film because it feels so expertly crafted." (Jason Delgado, Film Threat)
