Description


Wild East presents two films starring Claudia Cardinale and two of Italy’s most popular leading men, Giuliano Gemma and Franco Nero, in stories about the Sicilian Mafia.

In the first, I Am The Law (Il Prefetto Di Ferro – 1977), Gemma is Cesare Mori, an iron-fisted judge sent to pre-World War Two Sicily to end the stranglehold of the mafia on the peasants. Cardinale plays a mother desperate to protect her young son from the violence of the mob. Director and co-writer Pasquale Squitieri based I Am The Law on a real life incident in the life of a judge who rose through his tough and unorthodox methods. The film also features an evocative score by Ennio Morricone.

In the second film, Mafia (Il Giorno Della Civetta – 1968), during the turbulent sixties, Sicilian peasant woman Cardinale’s husband witnesses a mob hit and disappears leaving her in the middle of a murder investigation that pits fledgling police captain Franco Nero against respected and feared mafia don Lee J. Cobb. Directed by Damiano Damiani (Confessions Of A Police Captain), this somber police procedural boasts cinematographer by Tonino Delli Colli (The Good, The Bad And The Ugly, Once Upon A Time In The West). The film has been fully restored with a few scenes containing subtitles as no English tracks were recorded.
