somewhat muddled but the Girl is interesting
16 August 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Rita Mancuso's father is beloved Don Michele in Balata, Sicily. He orders the death of Bellafiore who murdered innocent peasants. A prosecutor arrives to confront him but the villagers support the Don rather than the corrupt incompetent police. Six years later, Rita is 17 and the village is awash with drugs. Her brother Carmelo gets killed and Rita brings in her evidence to the prosecutor who actually got her father's respect. She testifies against the Sicilian mob as revenge for her family's murders.

The story is somewhat muddled. Veronica D'Agostino is good as the fierce heroine. She isn't a pretty little thing but she has a nice vulnerability. Gérard Jugnot is also good. The material is there but the intensity is dispersed. The tension comes and goes. This should be a great character study of the Girl but the final ending should not be as confused.
