Storyline

VITO AND THE OTHERS is the groundbreaking film which drew international attention to the problem of neglected youth and street crime in poverty-stricken Naples. The film's opening moments are startling and deeply disturbing. A despairing Rosario has just murdered his wife and daughter at the dinner table on New Year's Eve. Somehow, Vito quietly convinces his father to drop the gun, spare their lives and call the police. Placed in the custody of sexually abusive relatives, Vito is left free to roam the trash-strewn back streets of Naples where he and his friends engage in drug abuse, prostitution and petty crime. Ably acted by a large cast of nonprofessional street kids, VITO AND THE OTHERS is a heartrending portrait of innocents without a future. Written by Jim Stark

A documentary of sorts
15 February 2000 | by (Maine) – See all my reviews

This movie is about the street children of Naples. It is a brutal and compelling film. No punches are pulled. Vito is about 11 or 12. He and his friends do what they can to survive. Sell their bodies, steal and finally kill.
