Brescia's Best
12 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

Poor old Alfonso,everyone hates his movies but i think i might have found the exception here.This is a great Italian crime film made strictly for local audiences ie Napoli and so no English language version but this is so good that doesn't matter.Mario Merola plays the character he plays in every Brescia movie,the Mafia don who everyone loves,a tough but nice guy.Unfortunatly Antonio Sabato arrives and starts demanding protection money from Merola and all the local shopkeepers,businessmen etc which finally leads up to a rather strange but violent showdown.

There are some great scenes in this movie and the soundtrack is fantastic esp. Merola's solo at the wedding party and the opening credits.The 2 leading men play their parts excellently and Brescia's direction is spot on.If your after an Italian crime movie that's a bit different but still has all the set pieces you expect from the genre then get this,if you can find it.
