THE CASTLE is a movie about Malpensa airport, a place where bureaucracy, procedures and control put a serious strain on the freedom of individuals, animals and goods passing through. The airport is a strategic place where all law enforcement agencies of a country come together. Here's where new control measures are reviewed: a permanent security testing area unlike any other public place.
