One more mafia tale made in.....Italy of course.
Not only Marty Scorcese knows how to tell a mafia story, with old scores, in the pure biopic modern style. Remember Damiano Damiani or Pascale Squieteri, awesome Italian directors from the sixties and seventies, and I don't even speak of Francesco Rosi. The three masters of the mafia movies, the most true and authentic ones, not the euro crime genre, with brutality, blood thirsty killers - and macho men beating women every two minutes - galore. Poliziottesco films for the huge and mindless audiences; I don't speak about these films. No, the one I am talking about today seems to remain unfortunately obscure, that's a shame because it is very efficient, sharp, effectively acted and directed. And, I affirm that the italian made pasta are the best on earth, and the same with mafia movies. You have some garbage from time to time, I admit, but this little film doesn't belong to this category. I would put it nearly on the same scale as GOMORRA, the movie, made in 2008.
