Good picture on the fourth Italian mafia
3 March 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is the first feature film of director Ruben Maria Soriquez, as far as I know. Well: a more than promising debut. I had the pleasure of watching it in Rome where I was spending my vacation, November last year.

The picture is a classic Italian mafia movie, with scenes typical of the genre: killings during lunch when you least expected it, people "disappeared" into the wells of Southern Italy. However, unlike many other movies of this genre, this one deals with Apulian mafia (called Sacra Corona Unita) of which existence I wasn't aware and I am sure the world knows little about. Evocative and interesting reconstructions of the rites of affiliation.

It's the story of the right arm of a boss and how his life changes when... and the final is terrific. The action progresses in crescendo, the last 20 minutes are quite exciting and make you forget any shortfall in the rhythm. The cut is excellent.

There are quite a few talented actors, especially Andrea Roncato performing the police commissioner and the absolute novice actor Nicola Pernisco giving life to a veracious Don Nicola. A real treat is the scene with Tony Sperandeo: the Italian actor for excellence when it comes to mafia movies. To watch.
