  • A fascinating look at the Mafia's vice-like grip on Sicily through the lens of photojournalist Letizia Battaglia.

  • Roughly two-thirds of the film feels like a self-indulgent memoir, with all the selective memory autobiographies often bring.

  • This film is as much credited to Longinotto's ability to frame a compelling and convincing narrative around tumultuous life amidst Sicilian crime organizations as it is to Battaglia's immeasurably brave efforts to expose the realities of the mafia.

  • Battaglia's photographs are notable not merely for the fact that she had the courage to take them, but also for her strong sense of style, as is evident from the many photographs included in this film.
