Storyline

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

Somewhat odd (and off) movie about a man who goes back to Sicily after many years after his parents were killed in a freak accident (their horse went off a cliff! Oy!) When he come back, he finds the tensions between the locals and the bad guys who order people around to have reached a crescendo and stays to, uh, try to work things out. I guess. He doesn't really, the whole movie is just one big anticlimax. You think he'll rescue the girl but he doesn't, you think he'll get rid of the bad guys in the end but he doesn't etc etc. I mean, who IS the hero here? Oh that's right! It's the MAFIA! Silly me (face palm). This movie tries to get the viewer worked up about the goings on, but it's actually quite hard for the viewer, since there's no one to root for.
