Interesting short I recently saw
12 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Caught an interesting short film made by Federico Castelluccio, previously of "The Sopranos" fame. Had a lot to like about it, included a cast headed up by Castelluccio, that also featured Paul Sorvino ("Goodfellas") and noted Italian-American actor, Tony LoBianco.

It was also set in the 1970s, and I really enjoyed the look of the period, the music and the basic feel for it. Castelluccio is to be commended for his direction, and he was even cited for Best Director of a Short at this particular film festival.

Centered around Santo Bastucci, a banker with a knack for remembering big numbers, this short film has a bit of a twist at the end. LoBianco plays a mob boss, who wants Bastucci to do a background check on some checks that are given to him to pay off a debt. The debt belongs to a man Bastucci has known since childhood, and this man's life may hang in the balance, depending upon Bastucci's answer.

While Bastucci doesn't want any harm to come to his friend, he also does not want to start mixing his business with the mob, despite the fact that his father-in-law and business parter, Benny (played amazingly by Sorvino) thinks this is a good opportunity for both of them.

But, what it really is in a wonderful opportunity for the audience. ;) See Lily of the Feast, either at a film festival or on DVD. It will be some time well spent.
