| A great movie, but must be watched in the full, non-cut version !
This is a wonderful movie if you have the chance to see the long, non-cut version. In the short version many important scenes are cut out and the movie loses basic background-information, the story seems a bit violent and only "runs" through to the end. But the non-cut version is a sensational movie, especially if you have an interest for Italy and Italian mentality. It really gives a deep insight into the Mafia-world of Sicily, provides solid stories behind the crime and furthermore, highlights a sensational appearance of Vincent Spano as Mark Ciuni. He gives an outstanding performance and dominates the movie. I was deeply impressed by the way he played Mark Ciuni, especially towards the end when his character became more and more difficult to portray. I received the 3 videos on a Saturday and originally planned to start with the 1st one and watch the 2nd the next day.....what can I say, I couldn't stop watching and so I started around 8 pm on Saturday and finished around midnight after having watched all tapes completely. 10 stars for the story and another 10 for Vincent Spano's sensational job.
