The Godfather it's not, but funny it is
27 March 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This is a movie about petty criminals in Bari, Italy who are looking for a mislaid drug shipment. Much of the action focuses on two underlings sent to look for the drugs along the railroad tracks. They spend most of their time sitting around, getting high and making fun of each other. Also, there is a bored, world-weary pool hall owner who waits for this shipment as people keep coming in and asking him for supplies. He runs a pool joint/bar that is also an undercover place for gambling and drug-selling, and hangs out with various friends and patrons there. Oddly enough, I would recommend this to anyone who likes Kevin Smith's indie movies, although his fans will NOT be able to find it easily at the local Blockbuster, since Blockbuster generally has a foreign film selection consisting of one copy of "La Dolce Vita", one copy of "Life is Beautiful" and (I'm guessing for the future) 8000 copies of "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon." This involves a similarly goofy set of individuals, swearing, and humor, with a criminal and Italian macho twist. The dialogue is less ironic or consciously clever than Kevin Smith's, but is still very funny. It is very much a guy/bloke film, but I enjoyed it. The soundtrack is also fast-paced and good--it adds to the ambience as they all zoom around Bari in cars and on Vespas. Good fun!
