They Call Me Jeeg Robot [Lo chiamavano Jeeg Robot]

(Frightfest Day 2)
Italian cinema trying to emulate other countries successful genres isn't anything new, this time they have a go at the superhero movie.
What is new is director Mainetti recognising the budgetary/resource limitations of his home country so that instead of making a pale replication he retools the superhero tale with lashings of social realism to create his own unique version. And it's fucking great.
