User Reviews

An authentic mafia tale.

That's exactly the kind of movie I love in the Italian thriller. Powerful, realistic and a thousand times better than the action packed but empty other spaghetti features with bloody sequences and so gratuitous violence. Films that are actually inspired from US movies such as DIRTY HARRY, BULLIT, THE GODFATHER; copycats, no more.

Italy is the country of mafia and corruption everywhere in the society, even in the politics. So, the film makers from there have no need to copy the US products, US schemes. They can do pretty good work with their own "culture". Film makers such as Pasquale Squietieri and Damiano Damiani have perfectly understood this. The pictures they describe are believable, authentic, even if they are shown in a minimal way, with no artificial and superficial means.
