Three old friends join for their traditional fishing excursion at the river. The day is marked by carefree jokes, cigarettes and beers until twilight. Once gathered around the campfire, with the moon as accomplice, the chatter escalates into the narration of a legend about an old tower, not far from the camp. The trio ventures in the wood to look for the abandoned tower, both as a joke and a challenge.
However, what they find interrupts the laughs and their complicity, exposing secrets and unexpected backstories which were concealed by a seeming great friendship... Can a legend transform into reality?
The actor and film maker Cataldo De Palma directs the short film TRIANGLE, devised and produced by Top Players Production, founded in 2015 by Andy Barreca, Diego Violante and Cataldo De Palma himself.
For his second work, De Palma abandons the brilliant atmosphere of the comedy to engage in thriller. Neverthless, TRIANGLE is promised to be a “genetically modified” thriller as it is tanited by horror: there are gothic elements like a wood, a tower and a legend, but above all there’s the hideousness embodied in human relations, such as the pettiness and secretiveness that mine its foundation.
The protagonists helplessly witness the implacable breakdown of their seemingly indestructible friendship under pressure of love, whose intensity apparently justifies everything up to the ultimate consequences.
Three little flies are trapped in a web of lies set up by a woman who seems to have emerged from the ashes of a distant past.
