Official Selection: Toronto Film Festival
Five Fingers For Marseilles is a classic spaghetti western.
Twenty years ago, Tau (Vuyo Dabula), one of the Five Fingers, fought to defend his community from corrupt cops. Now he’s returned home, hoping for an easy life. But there are others with different ambitions for the town of Marseilles, and Tau, like every great western hero, has to rise to the occasion.
Set in a South African shanty town, Five Fingers For Marseilles offers a unique, contemporary spin on the western. Beautifully shot by Shaun Lee, the South African landscape becomes the natural setting for film.
With a great cast of South African actors (Dabula’s performance recalls Eastwood’s Man With No Name) a great script by Sean Drummond, and tight direction by Michael Matthews, the film showcases genuine talents, who have created one of the best westerns of recent memory.
Screens with the short film Tusla.
