Absolutely not a good movie, full of clichés about Sicilian mafia, even here depicted as a minor thing, concerning only a few "deviated" families, but all in all perfectly under control. On the contrary, Mafia is far from being a romantic inconvenience, with heroic and wise old bosses always ready to pay for their "mistakes" (when? where?), but rather a terrible thing, which poisons all the ECONOMY of the world. More over, in this movie almost everybody seems out of role, except in part Ventura and Delon. The two venerables, Gabin and Nazzari, were probably never explained which parts they were playing in which movie. Even the music by Morricone, beautiful but obsessively repetitive, at the end spreads a certain smell of staleness. Sorry
