The truth always comes out sooner or later. It also applies to the true identity of DJANGOthe protagonist of the western Sky Original which pays homage to the classic by Sergio Corbucci, from Friday 17 March with the last two episodes (ninth and tenth, also available on demand) exclusively on Sky and streaming only on NOW.
The circle is about to close. There is no longer any place for lies, secrets or unspoken truths. In the latest episodes, directed by Enrico Maria Artale with Francesca Comencini as artistic director, New Babylon is preparing to celebrate the return of Sarah (Lisa Vicari). As per tradition, for the celebration the city will open its doors to everyone, and amidst masks, fireworks and music it will explode into a carnival to celebrate life. But the carnival turns everything upside down, including the lives of Django (Matthias Schoenaerts), Sarah, John (Nicholas Pinnock) and Elizabeth (Noomi Rapace). Indeed, it is precisely among the masks that the enemy hides, insinuates himself into the crowd and behind the disguise he enters New Babylon to strike it in the heart. And a wounded heart, as we know, makes wicked deeds.
The river of blood is now only destined to widen and revenge to reap more victims. But while Sarah reveals to Django the true name of their family’s killer, thus showing how much their lives are linked to that of John Ellis, Elizabeth knocks on the doors of New Babylon with an army, eager to purify and destroy what she considers a den of lustful and faithless. It is only this threat that leads Django to postpone his desire for revenge, and to take sides in defense of a city now destined to turn into hell for those who have always considered it hell. War has really come, and no one will be spared.
