Something Good

Fresh from finishing his five-year term in the Italian parliament, actor-director Luca Barbareschi returns to the filmmaking fray with a Hong Kong-set crime thriller about the trafficking of contaminated milk to Africa.

Luca Barbareschi might have taken himself out of politics, but his first directorial effort in over a decade shows him steadfastly unwilling to have the politics taken out of him. A thriller revolving around a Hong Kong-set conspiracy among Chinese businessmen to export contaminated milk powder to sub-Saharan countries — in what is dubbed as the “White Africa Operation” — Something Good is brimming with good intentions (as displayed by the expositional text about real-life tainted-food scandals bookending the film) and bubbling with genuine fury.
