Saw this saturday. Very good.

Very bleak, the polar opposite of the likes of Scarface. Shows the misery and human cost of organised crime. Slow-paced, well-shot, and immensely powerful.

As we have some italian posters i'm sure they have their own take on some of the specifics. I already read that some of the amateur actors involved have been arrested for various real crimes.

I'm going to see this in the couple of weeks. We're showing it at the theatre/arthouse cinema I'm working at. It looked like one of the highlights of the schedule once we got it. Glad to hear its worth it from a trusted source.

I saw this a few weeks ago. Italy has never looked so grim and unappealing. That main housing project where the film is centred is one of the worst i think i've ever seen. Great bit when they two young guys are letting off those weapons by the water.

ye olde medieval middle England. For the immediate if not forseeable future. England is better than Australia.

Good film. A little disjointed in terms of the strands of business that were shown and I also felt I may have benefited from more background knowledge of the subject. Enjoyed the euro-pop.
