The joint winner of the prestigious Silver Bear award at the 1991 Berlin Film Festival (where it tied with The Silence of the Lambs), Ultrà is a resolutely realistic story of loyalty and fanaticism set in the violent world of Italian football supporters. The film also garnered a Best Actor award for Ricky Memphis at the 1991 European Film Awards. Led by the forceful and extremely violent figure known to his comrades as 'Prince', a hardcore group of AS Roma supporters known as the 'Poison Brigade' travel to Turin to watch their team battle it out with their fierce rivals, Juventus. The real purpose of the trip however is not football, but violence, mayhem and destruction as 'Prince' and his loyal band of fellow hooligans seek out a bloody confrontation with their opposing fans.
