Should sensible Freddo or hotheaded Dandi be the new boss?

Written by KGF Vissers. There is long tradition in Italian cinema in which the hero is a thief or a pathetic loser or a criminal or, like in "Romanzo Criminale" all three.

Romanzo Criminale

Part of the tradition is to humanize the beasts, to give them feelings, to make us feel for them. Here we're giving an endless romance based on the real life Magliana band, a bunch of heartless, violent thugs that dominated the Roman gangland in the 70's. Michele Placido and his script writers concoct a confused and confusing document that is as annoying, tedious and opportunistic as it is long, endless really. There is, however, one big plus in its favor, the actors.

They are given a sketchy draw of their perverse characters but they go for it with body and soul. Kim Rossi Stuart's tormented Freddo exudes a cutting pain that makes you think he has a conscience. Claudio Santamaria projects danger without even trying and the "Libanese" is played by an actor totally new to me, Pierfrancesco Favino, that gives the best performance by an Italian Actor in many, many moons.

Riccardo Scamarcio has a face to launch a thousand ships but unfortunately no character and Stefano Accorsi is totally unbelievable in a character that is nothing short of absurd. Explosions, production values, American style editing, but very slow pacing, a brilliant dirty photography by the great Luca Bigazzi. What a pity that with all of this talent available the end result is so mediocre. Sign In.Sign In.

To carry out this feat without precedent he puts together a ruthless and highly organized gang. Their progress and changes in leadership Lebanese is followed by his cohorts Freddo and Dandi take place over twenty-five years, from the 's into the '90's, and are inseparably intertwined with the dark history of modern Italy: terrorism, kidnappings and corruption at the highest levels of government.

Throughout these years Police Lieutenant Scialoia sticks to the gang's trail, trying both to bring them to justice and to win the heart of Dandi's girlfriend Patrizia. Written by Anonymous. What a top notch TV series. Great not just by Italian standards, but by any standard. One of the best, if not the very best crime series I've ever seen, and I consider this better than most crime films.

It has nothing to do with the Sopranos, which follows the life of a mafia family, a man at the very top of the food chain and his personal family. This show is about young guys, not a family, only partners in crime, and their rise from the very bottom.

It is somewhat similar to Peaky Blinders in that regard. It is deep and rich.Sign In.

The Magliana gang was one of the most powerful Italian criminal associations, dominating Rome's drug, gambling and other kinds of crime activities from the early s to death of Enrico De Pedis. The gang's affiliates start their career kidnapping rich people, drug dealing hashish, cocaine, heroin, etc. Some gang members are still alive, as inmates of an Italian prison, or justice collaborators. The film is something of a showcase for a number of Italy's leading young film and television actors, notably Favino, who won a Donatello award for his performance as Lebanese.

Back at their hideout, a small disused caravan near a beach, they are discovered by the police. Cold, Lebanese and Dandi run away, but are captured. Grand, who is mortally wounded, dies in the caravan. Roll opening credits. Some years later, in the s, Ice is released from prison and joins up with Lebanese, who tells him he has come up with a plan to kidnap and hold to ransom Baron Rossellini, a wealthy aristocrat for whom Lebanese's parents worked.

After negotiating the ransom of 3 billion lire, the Baron is shot by one of the Cannizzari brothers who have been entrusted by Lebanese to guard him. Nonetheless, they take a picture of the dead man with a newspaper and get the 3 billion lire.

However, the drugs racket is owned by the dealer Terrible, and so the gang wipe his gang out apart from Gemito, who Lebanese bribes to help them. After his home is raided and his body guards killed, Terrible wakes to find Ice, Lebanese and Dandi in his bedroom.

Cornered, he reluctantly agrees to let give control of the racket to the gang. The gang grows in influence and ambition. Rome falls under their rule, and the rule of Lebanese. Dandi meets and becomes enamoured with an upmarket prostitute, Patrizia, who, in order to be kept under the sway of the gang and in order to prevent Dandi becoming involved in brawls provoked by his jealousy, is bought over and given a brothel.

Ice, meanwhile falls in love with his younger brother Gigio's tutor, Roberta. However, Lebanese begins to consider Ice's romance a weakness, a point reinforced when Ice asks to be dismissed from the gang.

In response, Lebanese casts up the car theft from their childhood, where his leg was permanently damaged by the pursuing police. Cold and Roberta begin to learn English with the idea that they will elope. However, when Ice is at the Bologna Train Station, there was an organized bombing, representing the state collusion. Later, Ice receives a phone call informing him that Lebanese is dead, stabbed by Gemito after a bitter game of poker.The Lebanese has a dream: to conquer the underworld of Rome.

English French Italian. Seeing it now for the first time it feels very much like an afterthought though it was actually made first.

The plots and the characters of both are virtually identical though the casting is different and while the film is a very good account of a criminal dynasty it lacks the depth of the tv series which was one of the best things to come from television from any country in recent years. At best, the film now seems like nothing more than a precis, though a good one, of the series, a quick run through the highlights.

It's certainly worth seeing if you haven't seen the television version but given the choice between the two go for the longer one and if, like me, you've already watched it on tv maybe it's best to give this one a miss. Some kids mowing down cops in a stolen car. Arguing about names. Yeah, Dandy is a terrible name. There're a lot of fuckers in this movie. So these guys have a shitty gang and kidnap some dude then kill him because apparently they don't know how kidnapping works.

One of them realises they're a bunch of fuck ups so decides they should basically take over Rome. Lots of ruthless murder and betrayal. Everything is aggressively 70s without being annoying. There's a cop hell bent on catching them and stopping this madness. Fucking moves like a bullet. Frantic story telling. Endless scheming and planning like all good crime movies. Always needing more money and power. Everyone's got a scooter or a….

Vedo confusione e tentativi di far quadrare gli eventi in maniera disordinata e disorganizzata, che, forse, non avrei addirittura potuto comprendere se non avessi avuto le conoscenze della serie.

Spero solo non sia colpa di eventuali pregiudizi a priori che mi ero ripromesso di tenere ad ogni costo limitati nell'angolo del silenzio. Flashy but overlong, strangely uninvolving Italian crime saga about a gang of friends who become kings of Rome's criminal underworld in the s.

If this was an Umberto Lenzi-directed poliziottescho, at least he would've thrown in a car chase or two.

First movie while in Rome, in Italian, without subtitles.

Its a bummer italians Suck At Making Movies these days, but this goofy gangster film that takes itself seriously is a good escape to mostly bad clothes just like in america! Ricostruendo la feroce ascesa criminale di un tre ragazzi di periferia, tra intrecci pericolosi la mafia e inconfessabili l'eversione nera, lo Statoil film racconta al contempo quindici anni di storia italiana.

Epic crime film following the rise and fall of a gang of friends in Rome. What keeps this from being a run of the mill crime film is the manner in which the tumultuous political events of 70s and 80s era Italy play a decisive part in the story.

The storytelling gets a bit unwieldy and it becomes difficult to keep track of all the characters and their relationships with each other. This review may contain spoilers.

I can handle the truth. In the Rome of the 70s and 80s there is a group of "street bandits" so they love to be called that they wanted to take all of Rome. Among the expansionist aims of the Lebanese, the Cold and the Dandy they put on a battery of not bad men, they start with the kidnapping, to reach the heinous murders of the bosses who controlled the main districts and gambling dens of Rome.

But like all projects involving more than a single individual, I end up badly, because a person's hunger for power hinders that of his close partner, ending in an infamous and fratricidal struggle within the Band itself, which will be seen gradually more and more weak and….
