Summary

First episode of the Italian crime drama, following the lives of two men on opposite sides of the law in 1990s Palermo. A principled young magistrate is determined to expose the corrupting influence of the Mafia on his workplace, while an ex-convict falls in with a crime family when he accepts a job as a crime boss's chauffeur. In Italian.

Review

Sicily 1993, where – as news footage of bloody corpses dumped in the street illustrates – Mafia killings are commonplace. But successful prosecutor Saverio Barone (Francesco Montanari) is stuck with tracking down minor drugs dealers until he comes to the attention of Palermo’s Anti-Mafia unit. Meanwhile, Don Luchino (David Coco), a man who doesn’t mind getting his own hands dirty, is calmly going about his nasty business.

It’s a slow-burner of a start to this Walter Presents drama based on a true story – there are lots of characters to keep track of – but what’s interesting is that Barone is not your typical hero. Is his driving force integrity or ambition? It’s not clear.
