The Mayor of Rione Sanità Il Sindaco del Rione Sanità

Synopsis

In this Neapolitan crime drama—a modern-day adaptation of playwright Eduardo De Filippo’s classic—Antonio Barracano is a “man of honor” who rules over the neighborhood of Rione Sanità exerting influence and muscle. When Rafiluccio comes to the “mayor” requesting his blessing to kill his own father, Don Antonio must reconsider his stance on retribution. Laying bare its theatrical origins, this riveting mafia tale imagines a way out of the endless cycle of vengeance and violence.
