Movie Info

As the title suggests, this film finds Italian helmer (Volfango de Biasi) giving Shakespeare's classic tragedy +Othello a slightly unique spin, with a heightened emphasis on Iago; it also reverses the roles by turning Othello into the manipulative monster and Iago into the wronged party. The action unfurls in the early 21st century at the University of Venice, where student Iago (Nicolas Vaporidis) has risen above his financially limited origins and shows enormous promise in his chosen field of architecture. Othello (Aurelien Gaya), an aristocratic architect's son, stabs Iago in the back by manipulatively damaging his academic stature and usurping his place as the designer of a project on the Biennale. Othello also steals Iago's love, chancellor's daughter Desdemona (Laura Chiatti), with whom he himself has been smitten for ages. Iago responds by creating a series of elaborate deceptions, designed to pay Othello back for his thoughtless Machiavellian acts.
