Pasquale, an old crook who lost his fortune to a gambling addiction, is planning his last big heist. For this he reunites The Wolves, a gang of northern Italian fairground operators who moonlight as criminals. They hope to provide themselves with a good pension by robbing a money wagon transporting twelve million euros. Pasquale, however, is unaware that this is not the only robbery that takes place.

THE LAST RIDE OF THE WOLVES is based on a real crime. Director De Michele himself says the following about it: ‘My life makes it possible for me to get in touch with the people in these worlds. I ‘steal’ stories from ‘other’ thieves and use them for my own purposes. This is without doubt the biggest heist of my life so far.’

Alberto De Michele, Netherlands, Italy, 2021, 81 min. Italian spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Pasquale De Michele, Alberto De Michele, Angelo Garbin.
