Storyline

Il film racconta una storia drammatica in maniera grottesca, quasi un musical demenziale. Don Tano Guarrasi, boss mafioso, viene ucciso da un killer nella sua macelleria, nel quartiere della Vucciaria, a Palermo. Parenti ed amici ricordano le sue "gesta". Le sue sorelle raccontano dello stretto e quasi morboso legame che le teneva legate a lui (sotto sotto ora si sentono più libere). Tano era un "associato" alla mafia, ma non troppo importante, perciò viene eliminato, forse per qualche 'sgarro'. Sarà proprio un ragazzo introdottosi in casa per far la corte alla sua non avvenente figlia ad ucciderlo. Il tutto condito da canzoni e balletti strappalacrime o esageratamente kitch.

one of the best italian movies of the nineties
31 December 2000 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

A funeral is the first scene of this movie, just like in Godfather II and this is only the first of many quotations. The film tells the true story of the mobster Tano Guarrasi. However the story is just a pretext to depict Mafia in an absolutely new, irreverent, mocking way: you'll see "mafiosi" - ridiculous or very effeminate "mafiosi" - dancing and singing. The actors are unprofessional actors from Vucciria, Palermo's quarter where the true Tano Guarrasi lived. I love this movie because the idea - mafia in musical - is quite original.
