Breaking Glass Pictures has announced that the film “Diablo” will be on VOD May 5 and DVD June 4. The film, featuring Nicanor Loreti in his feature film directorial debut, will show audiences a deep and dark story about boxing, morality, dark humor and the need for redemption.

A depressed former champion awakes. He´s tired, a bit out of shape, and his conscience is draining him. His career in the ring ended abruptly when he killed his rival with a single devastating punch. That´s why Marcos Wainsberg, the Inca of the Sinai, wants to quit fighting. But today is not the day to be thinking about that. Today his ex-girlfriend will come, in peace. Today is a good day. But the doorbell rings and the person at the other side is his black sheep cousin, Huguito. Today can be one of those days when everything changes. The only thing that is left to know is whether it will be for the better…

Regurgitated from the very insides of genre cinema, Diablo is a furious and corrosive progression that leaves you breathless, but also provokes a remarkable morbid pleasure with its accumulation of scenes featuring violence, black humor, and a pure, hardcore swagger.

Diablo has been a hit at festivals, winning tons of awards on the Latin American film festival circuit, including Best Screenplay at the Flandes Latino Film Fest 2012, Best Director and Film at FESAALP 2012, and Best Film at Festival de Mar del Plata. Loreti also won Best Director at Fantaspoa 2012.

The DVD will be priced at $24.99 and will include special features such as a behind-the-scenes featurette.
