A more detailed synopsis
describing Johnny’s character was also released:
Magistrate, administrator of an isolated frontier settlement on the border of
an unnamed empire, looks forward to an easy retirement until the arrival of
Colonel Joll, whose task it is to report on the activities of the “barbarians”
and on the security situation on the border. Joll conducts a series of ruthless
interrogations. The treatment of the “barbarians” at the hands of the Colonel
and the torture of a young “barbarian” woman combine to lead the Magistrate to
a crisis of conscience and a quixotic act of rebellion.”
Merci beaucoup Deauville! And take care of our baby!

this festival, but let’s stay tuned.
Jacopo Quadri, editor of the “Waiting for the Barbarians” shared a photo of the
editing session of the movie. This version is the one which will be screened at
the festivals, but it doesn’t mean that will be the same version screened on
theaters and/or the DVD/Blu-ray or On-demand. Some movies after the festivals,
based on the critics and audience opinions, are re-edited with more, less or alternate scenes.
“Waiting for the Barbarians” will have three new
exclusive screenings reserved only for those working in the cinematographic
sector, such as media professionals from specialized cinema/entertainment websites (not for social networks), professionals from press, radio/TV, photographers, press
These are important to know because two
of these screenings will happen at the morning of September 6, before the
official premiere schedule for 19:30h! So the first articles, posts, photos, comments and
critics may be released sooner online on the following hours.
