Co-written and directed by Cosimo Gomez, Netflix’s ‘My Name Is Vendetta’ (originally titled ‘Il Mio Nome è Vendetta’) is an Italian crime thriller film that follows the seemingly regular and usual life of Santo and his family until his daughter Sofia secretly clicks his photo and posts it on social media. Given the boundless networks of social media, the post is enough to change Santo’s family’s life forever as two criminals, with links to his past, break into his house and kill his wife and brother-in-law to settle an old score.
Sofia finds out that Santo has been hiding dark secrets from his past. He was a member of the N’drangheta, which has finally come back to haunt him after several years. Now that the truth is out in the open, the two are hell-bent on taking revenge. So, Sofia trains under Santo, and they flee to the enemies’ lair for vengeance. While the suspenseful and action-packed narrative keeps the viewers on the edge of their seats, the transition in locations as the story progresses makes one wonder where ‘My Name Is Vendetta’ was shot.
