Storyline

Saverio Luparello is the manager of Sicilian baron Occipinti's estate.

Luparello's three sons try to scare the Costas out of their farm but they are defended by Don Salvatore, the innkeeper and leader of the local Mafia. The next day, Andrea, the oldest son, indirectly causes the death of Diego and Wanda Costa. Don Salvatore has him eliminated and has Saro Costa, the honest share-farmers' ten-year-old son,sent to America. Fifteen years later, Saro, now a handsome well-built young man, is back...

Excellent adult movie from Italy
27 April 2006 | by mccrohanSee all my reviews

This movie received poor notices from USA and UK critics because the versions presented to them were much shortened and much of the intelligent drama content was lost. (for USA the time was 63 minutes and for Uk only 65 minutes. ) . To gain a full appreciation of this fine Italian movie it is essential to see the original Italian version of 97 minutes (or alternatively view the German version of 95 minutes or French version of 85 minutes) . That said, this film gives an accurate view of certain aspects of Italian life in the 1950,s ( particularly relating to the Mafia ). The acting of Rossano Brazzi and Milly Vitale is splendid. In all this film successfully. continues the tradition of Italian realism
