Trivia

Giovanni Montinaro, son of Judge Giovanni Falcone's chief of security, strongly opposed the film, criticizing the choice of releasing it on the anniversary of the murder of his father and of the others involved in the attack. He let it go when Pierfrancesco Favino told him that the date was chosen by the production precisely as a way to pay homage to Falcone, his wife and his security detail, killed that day in 1992.

User Reviews

 
Il Traditore directed by Marco Bellocchio.

A fabulous movie based on the true story of Tommaso Buscetta, the repentant member of Cosa Nostra which, with the help of the magistrate Giovanni Falcone, revealed the most important names of the mafia. Great directing, and Pierfrancesco Favino is truly awesome. May seem slow, being a film focused on dialogue and words but it is a beautiful portrait of the more psychological side of the character.
