Critics reviews

Mafioso was released a year after Pietro Germi’s Sicilian-set Divorzio all’italiana (Divorce Italian Style, 1961), and while it may not have that film’s breathless first-person fizz, it is stylistically accomplished nonetheless. Above all, it has that great sense of narrative economy typical of Lattuada (longueurs are scarce in his cinema).
