Riccardo De Filippis,
A TV series following the story of the movie by the same title. Also in this case Pif tells the story of a young boy in the city of Palermo during the roaring seventies, when the mafia was not around, officially.......
Il Capo dei Capi (The Boss of the Bosses) is a six-part Italian miniseries which debuted on Canale 5 between October and November 2007. It tells the story of Salvatore Riina, alias Totò u Curtu, a mafioso boss from Corleone, Sicily. Riina is played by Palermo-born actor, Claudio Gioè, and the series was directed by Alexis Sweet and Enzo Monteleone. The film is inspired from the eponymous book-inquiry of Giuseppe D'Avanzo and Attilio Bolzoni.
Truth & fiction Having read the John Dickie's Cosa Nostra I found the Corleone series a bit disappointing.The main reason is the introduction of the fictitious police officer Bragio Shiro. Unfortunately a most common interspersing strategy in series based on a true story. In this case the trick did not function very well in my opinion. Too much of the story was focusing on the relationship between Schiro and Riino from an early stage, and then later Falcone and Schiro. A series that started out most promising ended up in irritation on my account. A rating of 4 points are all I'm willing to give.
