Pentito, Il (1985, ITA) C-119m. ** D: Pasquale Squitieri. Starring Franco Nero, Tony Musante, Erik Estrada, Max von Sydow, Rita Rusic (=Cecchi Gori), Ivo Garrani, Claudine Auger, Rik Battaglia, Venantino Venantini. Another one of director Squitieri's mafia dramas (one wonders why they never knocked him off). Quite unexceptional, earnest film that is based on the real-life judge Falcone, who battled the Cosa Nostra, with Nero playing the title character. Despite the performances and Ennio Morricone's unsettling score, the two hours can be difficult to sit through. English title: THE REPENTER.
