Cento Giorni a Palermo (1984, ITA/FRA) C-98m. ** D: Giuseppe Ferrara. Starring Lino Ventura, Giuliana de Sio, Lino Troisi, Stefano Satta Flores. Typical Italian thriller drama dealing with the powerful grasp of the Mafia. An aged Ventura is fine as police commissioner in Palermo, Sicily, who tries to break the mobsters' rule. Filmed in semi-documenary style, but also without any dramatic peaks. For those interested. Cowritten by Giuseppe Tornatore (NUOVO CINEMA PARADISO), who also directed the second unit. English title: 100 DAYS IN PALERMO.
