Movie Info

A young man's determination to put a stop to organized crime in his community puts him at odds with his family in this drama from Italy. As a child, Peppino Impastato was very close with his uncle Don Cesare (Pippo Montalbano), but was unaware that he was head of local Mafia operations. As he grew to adulthood, Peppino (Luigi Lo Cascio) became a political activist and a member of the Communist party, thanks to the influence of a close friend and leftist artist (Andrea Tidona). With his friends, Peppino starts an underground radio station to speak out against the corrupt influence of the Mafia and their control of local government, bravely leading public rallies calling for citizens to stand united against organized crime. However, Peppino's family still has strong ties with the mob, and as the young man and his comrades wage war against Tano and his men, Peppino's father (Luigi Maria Burruano) does everything he can to bring his wayward son back into the fold. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Audience Reviews for I Cento passi (One Hundred Steps) (The Hundred Steps)

I've never been to Italy nor do I really know much about their history, but I had to watch this for my italian 101 class, we had outside of class events to go to for grades, and it is a very great film. It's based on a true story about a young man trying to make a difference in a community run by the mafia. Eventually I will probably buy the dvd online because I really want to watch it again!

Works well as a family drama, a piece of history, and even a "mafia movie," if it isn't too insulting to call it that. Luigi Lo Cascio and Luigi Maria Burruano are both exceptional.
