Crime drama based on the novel by Giancarlo De Cataldo. Lebanese (Pierfrancesco Favino) is the cold-hearted leader of a juvenile delinquent trio that also includes undyingly loyal Freddo (Kim Rossi Stuart) and power-hungry Dandi (Claudio Santamaria). After kidnapping and casually murdering a baron (Franco Interlenghi), the scheming friends soon form shady alliances with the local gangsters, corrupt cops, and secret service members that will allow them the opportunity to effectively corner the market on heroin sales.

I recommend this film to anyone reading this review, hoping they might spread the word of this little gem of a film.
Based on the Magliani gang who did control Rome,it spans about 20 or so years and from the early days of kidnapping local bigiwgs into drug dealing and prostitution it shows that not even the tightest relationships can survive the phrase'absolute power corrupts absolutely'as the members of the gang,Lebanese,Ice,Dandy etc begin to fall to pieces because of love,paranoia,drug addiction and the dogged efforts of the police commissioner who wants to bring them down.
Watching this i was reminded of the likes of Goodfellas,Casino,The Godfather and if you are even a passing fan of good movies this is a must .
Childhood friends (with their chosen nicknames Ice, Lebanese and Dandy) grow up together and form a large crime gang, vowing to take over Rome with organised crime (through gambling, drugs and prostitution).
This gang grows, gets guns and develops a nice tidy set-up, but is being hunted by determined police. One of the main three falls for a prostitute (as also does a detective). The story builds up to feuds, distrust, scamming and ultimately a deadly finale of gangster extravaganza.
The film is 2.5 hours, slick, 60's styled, racy, rude and violent. It obviously nods to and is influenced by The Godfather trilogy, Goodfellas and should please fans of other such gang and gangster driven titles (Mesrine, 36 etc). It is foreign, world cinema but in a more tale like fashion, rather than dramatic action or entertainment.
The film is so popular in Italy they created a spin-off TV series. It is NOT a Mafia film, as the gang is on a more smaller scale, telling an unconventional tale about 3 boys growing to men through 3 decades.
I would recommend this to film fans (especially world cinema) but warn it is long, demanding, light in drama and history, but rewardingly slick and likeable.
