Scenery Is Gorgeous; Movie Is So-So
28 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The best part of this film is simply to see Palmero, Italy. It's like watching a travelogue, and that's fine with me because I love all the greens and browns of Italy. This movie reminded me of scenes in "The Godfather." scenery-wise.

The story is a very simple one and it's drawn. However, it's not as as boring as it should have been. Basiscaly, it's a plug for legalizing drugs with the intention of putting the Mafia out of business and make it safer for kids (supposedly) who wouldn't have pushers bothering them. It sounds good.....but, in practice, it hasn't worked as we have found out in at least one other European country.

This is a slower-paced film which might not appeal to people expecting a tough crime movie. It wasn't memorable, but palatable and certainly pleasing on the eyes.
