Great mistery move from last Leonardo Sciascia book
30 June 2003 | by (Siena, Italy) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie. We have another great performance by Gian Maria Volonte, and all the young cast (actually all of them are among the best italian actors) worked very well around him. It's a nice mistery movie, that tells Sicily in Sciascia's way. 8 out of 10.
