This is a 2013 Italian drama written and directed by Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza.
Since the script seems poorly developed, the film fails to impress the viewer.
No director could make a good movie out of a poor script.

Excellent performances by the actor playing the titular role and the non-actress playing Rita. The Mafiosi are somewhat cartoonish with elaborate dyed, comb-overs and wearing the ubiquitous 80s track suits but the film is still compelling. Yes, the story is very unlikely but the Palestinian actor playing Salvo is compelling. It was clear to me early on that he was too silent to be an Italian actor.

The kind of murky and drawn-out melodrama so beloved of pretentious critics and film festivals. Avoid this one at all costs.

The first half of the film can be dragging wit the slow-pace and the often dark interior setting. However, towards the end, the film builds up and then "blooms" like a flower that makes up for its slow budding process. I was wondering at first how those various film events showered it with praises while watching it initially that I almost wanted to give up and eject it but patience pays for that virtue later. Well crafted!
