Movie Info

Roberta Torre's first feature, TO DIE FOR TANO was a huge commercial and critical success in Italy, winning three awards at the Venice Film Festival, three Silver Ribbons from the Italian National Syndicate of Film Journalists and two David di Donatello ("Italian Oscar") awards for Best Music and Best Director. TO DIE FOR TANO caused a media sensation when it opened in Italy for lampooning the Italian mafia and for its stylistic audacity, blending Italian neo-realism, kitsch and an MTV

Left me more perplexed than pleased.

Torre's debut takes true incidents from the Mafia wars that plagued Palermo in the late '80s and kicks them into a deliriously gaudy farce.

The film is a low budget masterpiece of scathing satire and pointed allegory.

One for the Movies That Aren't Nearly as Clever as Their Directors Think They Are canon.

To Die for Tano (Tano da morire in its original Italian-language title) seems to have been on the shelf for a long, long time -- since 1997. The movie should have stayed there.

Audience Reviews for To Die for Tano

A campy, amateurish and very strange Italian musical about the downfall of a small time mafia boss, based on real-life events in Palermo. It's gratifying to see these hateful thugs reduced to mincing buffoons; a favorite sequence involves them disco dancing SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER style, looking very effeminate with their open neck shirts and gold chains as they sing "we are the mafia!" It may be worth searching for if you crave oddities.
