Where is the truth?
4 March 2007 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

During the 70s several films related to life in Sicily and Mafia's misdoing were made, most of them starred by Franco Nero. Probably this was the best acting period for Nero. The present film is a bit different from the others, its plot is original and I found it quite interesting. Giacomo Solaris (Nero) is a film-maker very much interested in all Mafia's deals. As a result of his work he came to some conclusions and assertions with a film he made regarding a Sicilian magistrate, and from here the plot starts and you will follow it in a labyrinth of issues. The film is also interesting because it shows the differences of the people speaking Italian from the North with the Sicilian population. For example, Nero pronounces Italian well while the Sicilians have a particular accent due to the influence of their local dialect. It also reflects well the environment in Sicilian towns. May be a modest film compared to others but good to see it.
