It's a winning and likable film.
Imagine 'Gomorrah' remade as a Ben Stiller romcom.
I suspect that it works best of you're an aficionado of recent Italian political history, its inside jokes and its incidental characters.
The line between ha-ha funny and sorrowful reverence has been crossed - more deftly than you'd think.
Some of this is moving, and some of the shtick is weirdly hilarious, but despite Diliberto's apparent sincerity, his attempt to accomplish too many things at once ends up with him accomplishing nothing much at all.
"The Mafia Kills Only in Summer" is original, winning entertainment, and well executed. No pun intended.
Set in Palermo "where the mafia influences everyone's lives", Pierfrancesco Diliberto's coming of age picture is a light, witty yet at the same time deadly serious affair.
After a slow start, some lively performances and shock developments keep attention levels high.
Arturo's Mafia-centric view of life is wryly humorous, turning him into a very odd young man indeed.
Mafia blood and true love are strange bedfellows in this black comedy whose wonderful title promises more than the film offers
Sicilian tyke Arturo grows up hearing there is no such thing as the Mafia and seeing, everywhere he looks, evidence to the contrary.
It's funny and shocking, often in the same moment, securely positioning a coming-of-age story on top of reality, developing all the awkwardness and awareness with enticing wit, timing, and horror.
