What are people saying?

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film Fortapàsc

    Italian Golden Globe in the Best Director category and a few awards in European Film Festivals. As an homage to journalist Giancarlo Siani murdered by the Camorra at the age of 26 in 1985, the film is flawless. As a movie itself, the film differs little from dozens of mainstream movies about the relations between organized crime and politicians. Already forgotten. Unfortunately.
