il capo dei capi
31 July 2010 | by wastedmothSee all my reviews

A great mafia film in six parts with excellent acting, I've watched it a few times, something I couldn't understand was the lack of detail in more than one occasion when killings took place in cars, during the killings it was clear to see the windows shatter in the cars but as the camera panned away there was no damage to be seen, this however didn't spoil the film, I speak Italian so it was bonus for me but I had to wait a bit to find an Italian that had also seen it to compare opinions, he thought it was great as well. The story started with the death of Totó Riina's father and the responsibility of Totó becoming head of the family at a young age, Totó soon got the idea of wanting more out of life than working the land as a peasant, he teamed up with three other youths, one of them followed the path of the law and became the fictitious Biaggo Schiró that represented any tenacious and brave cop that was to fight against the mafia over decades, the character of Biaggio as a cop always wanted to investigate even when his superiors would rather leave things alone for the sake of an easy life an he would drop everything to continue his work at the expense of his family. The character Luciano Ligio also played a great part in this film.
