First and foremost I have to say that Squittieri could have used the real names of all the characters he intended to portray, starting with Judge Giovanni Falcone (Instead of Judge Falco), the "pentito" Tommaso Buscetta (Instead of Vanni Ragusa), "pidduista" Michele Sindona (Instead of Spinola), Chief of Palermo's Police Squara Mobile division Boris Giuliano (Instead of the Judge who gets blown away in the bar).
A rather uncanny resemblance to real life characters (Mafiosos and politicians) whose past and present roles in the affairs of Cosa Nostra are still being analyzed by judges and high ranking investigators. Photography was rather good and, useless to say, Morricone's sounds are the right complement to this portrait of Sicilian magistrates' lives.
Franco Nero needs to tone himself down a bit when playing such roles (Judge Falco). This motion picture is a must see. I also recommend Pizza Connection after this one.
