Critic Reviews for Black Souls
This Mafia drama sets out to strip away any hint of glamour.
Though the content of the typical mob movie can shock with its brutality and perversity, the tragic arc ultimately reinforces traditional values while allowing a vicarious indulgence in the taboo.
Writer-director Franceso Munzi has particularized the familial relationships enough for it to stand on its own. (As Tolstoy wrote, all happy crime families are the same but each unhappy crime family is unhappy in its own way.)
Black Souls is above all the story of a family divided, a fraternal knot that can be untied only through tragedy.
Solemn, strong Italian film about family, crime and the deep roots of revenge offers widescreen visions and intimate murders, making for a very different Mafia saga.
