I never heard of this movie before it just popped up in my netlfix feed. The trailer was good and although I couldn't even find the Imdb page at first I decided to give it a chance. I
Just, WOW! I am blown away by how incredible this movie was! This is one of the best mafia / gangster movies I've ever seen. The setting, locale, time period, music, style, acting are all top notch. The end is slightly weird but it didn't detract from the otherwise incredible movie.
The story is similar to most if not all gangster movies. Poor ambitious kid grows into a rich mobster and it all spirals out of control. But man, what a story and ride it is.. There are some surprises and the fact that the movie is Italian is both great, because it makes it different fork all the American movies and shows the Italian mob in their home country. But it's also slightly confusing for a non Italian because of certain cultural references etc
If you like movies about the mafia.. 110% watch this right now! I can't believe this didn't get more marketing and hype! My only complaint is that the movie isn't longer.
