Never in all my years of film enjoyment have I passed 3 hours watching such painfully good, yet bitter irony. Although, at the begging one automatically considers this a sad failed remake of The Godfather storyline, one soon comes to the realization that this film has nothing to do with the weakness or shortcomings of the Don and the future patriarchs of the Luciano family. No, this film is about the mistakes of everyday human beings and the most stinging, biting irony one could ever imagine. Even though much of the film is predictable there were twists that added to the pain and were completely unexpected. If you enjoy irony that draws out every last sweat drop, this is the film to watch and remember not the judge this book by its cover --or first scenes.
