‘The Mafia Kills Only In Summer’

themafiakillsonlyinsummer.poster.ws_Crass comedy, in part an extended coming-of-age flashback (the better of the two ‘halves’), in part a squirm-inducing romcom as Arturo continues his childhood infatuation with Flora into adulthood.

The title? A throwaway line from Arturo’s father to help the boy sleep. The havoc wreaked by the Mafia during 1970s – 90s in Palermo is the background to the (unbelievable) romance evolving on screen. If that’s not enough, 42 year-old writer/director Pierfrancesco Diliberto unconvincingly plays the young-adult Arturo.
