Storyline

Red Moon is the story of a repentant member of the Mafia, who confesses to a judge, in a lengthy flashback to all the misfortunes wrought by the horrendous crimes of some families that struggle to perpetuate the logic of their evil power. Since the beginning of the 1970s, the Cammarano family has extended its rule over a wide territory, with coldness and no scruples. Nobody would dare to dispute its control and its increased power. Yet things are bound to change, as the new generations feel estranged from their own lives. The balance within the family starts to collapse, and the old grudges re-emerge. Red Moon shows the end of the family, at the hands of a young offspring. It is the end of the Mafia family. This tragedy is inspired by Aeschylus' Orestiadi as the name of the main character, Orestes, clearly implies. Written by antonello

interesting mix of camorra and Greek tragedy
14 December 2006 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

i had occasion to talk to the director, antonio capuano, he was invited to my city to discuss his film (on dec 13 2006) and he criticized those American films which show us mafia and camorra as something fascinating, something to imitate because they use famous and handsome actors to interpret mafia bosses and in this way make us feel positive about them. capuano instead intended to create a feeling of disgust, horror, revolt against mafia and camorra and he said that only if we recognized it as something evil and to fight against then we would make a step further to not simply accepting such cancers of our society. so, if other comments say that it was just a series of killing people it is true but it is on purpose. i also want to make evident the incredible mix of the camorra topic with Greek tragedy (orestes) and the interesting mix of language: slang from naples with literary style. so, even if i don't like mafia and camorra films that much it has impressed me positively.
