bleak but never to be forgotten
7 March 2004 | by (wicklow,ireland) – See all my reviews

this is a damiano damini so youll expect a certian level of social realism and it does not disappoint. its a damming film about the stranglwhold of the mafia in palermo where this is set. See it,you wont be disapponited,but you will not feel better about life. This is not fantasy godfather stuff but the real hopeless raw variety. In a funny way its a hym to humanity. Palermo looks really awful and down at heel. wonderful score out of 10 a nine.
