Mysterious Tatanaka


"Champion boxer and ex-convict Michele (Clemente Russo), nicknamed “Tatanka,” flees to Berlin after his old mobster associates lean on him to fight a dirty match. Once in Germany, Michele starts training with Coach Vinko (Rade Serbedzija) to get back to his peak form pre-incarceration - but escaping one’s past is never easy, and Tatanka’s hardest fight proves to be outside of the ring. In Italian with English subtitles"
