One more underrated mafia movie

I discovered here one more totally unknown movie feature from Italy, the country where the mafia comes from. Actually, it takes place in Sicily. A sad, violent downbeat tale of vengeance and honour, as we can guess. A film in the line of what such directors as Pasquale Squieteri, Francesco Rosi and Damiano Damiani did, but here at a lesser scale. I am lucky to have got it from a taping off. Probably Norway, Netherlands, Greece, who knows?

I don't know the director nor the actors. I guess there are many of those gems hidden some where, in vaults, producers or distributor's ones.
