Movie Info

ONE GIRL AGAINST THE MAFIA: Diary of a Sicilian Rebel is just that - the story of a 17-year-old from a Mafia family whose father and brother are murdered as a matter of course. In November, 1991 Rita Atria breaks the code of silence she has grown up with and gives evidence to an anti-Mafia judge. Rejected by her mother (and almost everyone else she's ever known), she goes into hiding in Rome. Using excerpts from Rita's diaries, Marco Amenta constructs a powerful story of an ultra-violent world and the courage of one young woman against all odds. -- © Film Forum

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

There was genuine courage in the girl's actions, but the writer and director, Marco Amenta, drowns it in a flood of sentimental effusions.

A riveting and inspiring story right out of The Godfather.

Top Critic

A storytelling guitarist's running elegy gives Rita's bold actions a sadly epic scope.

The story attests to the extraordinary courage of women like Rita and Piera who refuse to sit by and allow the violence to continue.
