Set across 2 decades and 3 continents this epic film was the centrepiece of the nationwide Italian Film Festival and was shortlisted for Best Film at Cannes, New York and Toronto. Based on the true story of the Mafia Wars in Italy in the early 1980's and the subsequent senastional trials of mafia family members. It's a tour de force performance by Pierfrancesco Favino as Tommaso Buscetta who betrayed the vow he made to the Cosa Nostra.
Acclaimed Director, Marco Bellocchio is renowned for getting to the heart of families in his films and he's hit the jackpot with the dark-hearted Corleone's.
Do we need to make you an offer you can't refuse? It's won countless awards and was nominated for Best Film at Cannes.
