This movie is a jumble,a dreadful pot-pourri of incompetent playing (Béatrice Dalle,in a pointless part),writing (as many plot holes as in Swiss cheese) and scoring (syrupy strings , angelic hymns or Italian solo singer).
The only reason to watch this movie is Raf Vallone's performance.He is no longer the handsome man he used to be but he retains charisma,humor and mischievousness.The maffia stuff has become a hackneyed topic nowadays.It's not the final melodramatic coup de théâtre (predictable anyway)that can save such a "déjà vu" story.
Do not mistake this 1999 movie for the eponymous Jean Renoir classic(1934);and,no,it's not a remake.
