Product Description

The Sweet And The Bitter DVD from DVDLand.

Luigi Lo Cascio (The One Hundred Steps, IFF2000), one of the defining actors of contemporary Italian cinema, gives one of his finest performances in this revealing portrait of a young man's seduction by the Mafia that begins in the early 1980s and spans 20 years. Gaetano Butera (Tony Gambino) sets his sights on young Saro (Lo Cascio) when he's just a boy, sure that he'll make a great recruit for his organization. Soon Saro is part of the mob's day-to-day operations, quickly moving up the ranks as he demonstrates his talents and gets richly rewarded for his work. But when he's given one brutal assignment too many, something in him snaps - even knowing that his 'colleagues' don't take such treachery lightly... Director Porporati creates a disturbing study of the extent of Mafia involvement in everyday Italian society and the normalization of a regime of violence and corruption. Premiering at the Venice Film Festival, The Sweet and the Bitter sees the Mafia film come of age.
