Mafioso

Alberto Lattuada / IT, 1962 / 102 min.

There ain’t nothing for free is a lesson Nino learns when he returns for a holiday to the village in Sicily where he was born. Gripping portrait of the Sicilian mafia, way before The Godfather. The tone is comic and tragic at the same time; Italian star Alberto Sordi gives a stunning performance as Nino.

Ten years before Francis Ford Coppola spectacularly exposed the mores of a mafia family in The Godfather, Alberto Lattuada made a film portrait of the omnipotence of the mafia in post-war Italy.
