Every word seems useless to describe this movie. An incredible catalogue of charachters, mostly played by non professional actors or inhabitantants of Palermo slums, Sicily. A history of Mafia murders takes places in a post-atomic scenario (brilliantly represented by the ZEN popular quarters of Palermo), where dogs have taken control of the streets. Funeral marches, singers, dwarfs, just a few female charachters in the plot, but played only by male actors. A flop at cinemas, but it could not have been different. A masterpiece of photography. Perfect location. Not a single word, image, or act is out of place. A masterpiece. See less
