Excellent story
18 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

Very unique story about a turnaround life in organized crime.... I would think it's hard to imagine such a possibility, but this is a very realistic film, without minimizing the costs, the hardness of what might be involved. A lot of art, creative camerawork and imagery for a television movie, too. Well-written and masterfully directed.
