Storyline

In the late 1970s and early 80s, assassinations in Sicily get the attention of Communist deputy, Pio La Torre, who appeals to General Carlo Alberto Dalla Chiesa to become prefect in Palermo and take on the Mafia. Dalla Chiesa approaches the job with the same focus and methods he used in hunting down the Red Brigade. His sweetheart, the much-younger Setti Carraro (everyone calls her Emanuela), wants to be with him in Palermo, but he sends her away, knowing he is in danger. Then, a few months into office, he asks her to marry him, and he tries to be both husband and investigator. Meanwhile, the Mafia bankers are feeling the heat, and they start with La Torre.

Cento Giorni A Palermo-An outstanding example of 'political film' directed by Giuseppe Ferrara.
22 September 2013 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

The names of leading Italian directors namely Matteo Garrone, Marco Tullio Giordana, Francesco Rosi, Gianni Amelio, Elio Petri etc come to mind whenever one thinks of political cinema. By successfully depicting the milieu in which Palermo's mafia has held its sway in Italy, Giuseppe Ferrara has joined this coveted list with his political film '100 days in Palermo'. His film is highly gripping to the core as it makes good use of real life situations to talk about political corruption in Italy which had completely shattered people's trust in democracy. This is one reason why viewer don't lose interest as what is being depicted concerns them both from a political as well as a sociological perspective. Apart from its tough political stances, Cento Giorni A Palermo focuses enormously on its hero's rather tricky personal life which has also become a victim of undue political pressures. It is this proximity to authenticity which lends itself an air of universal appeal as most honest officials anywhere in the world would be compelled to face the same consequences as depicted in this film. Hundred days in Palermo is a highly researched work of art which captures in great detail all the conflicts which made it easy for mafia to rule in Palermo. Lastly, Giuseppe Ferrara has brilliantly questioned two major philosophical notions in his true to 'documentary style' film which depicts one man's relentless fight against corruption. Lastly, it would be in the interests of any good student of political philosophy to discuss whether the state and the government are the same ? and is law merely a form of tool to fight injustice ?
