new level, same story
18 January 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

it is difficult to review a series who likes with life in so great measure. because the secret of "La piovra" success is the presence of roots for central character. so, his fight is not part of Don Quijote battle. feelings, sacrifice, existence as hunting without end,fake allies and lost of friends, solitude in a large cemetery and ideals as food for a special form of duty. far to be a silhouette, Cattani is a warrior in search of justice not as beautiful idea but as need of sense for each of his day. it is strange to write about a legendary film. but this way to present it is good for remember it. because it is a movie who speaks about ordinaries problems of its public. in a special manner.
