The movie tells the story of three brothers, the sons of a shepherd, close to the ndrangheta and of their divided soul. When one of them shoots up a local bar owned by a rival family, his reckless behavior re-ignites a longstanding Mafioso blood feud.
In a certain kind of Italian mob picture, you expect blood feuds, family feasts, and generational conflict. Certainly Francesco Munzi's adaptation of a popular crime novel has all that, but it's more family drama than shoot-'em-up.
This is a dynastic tale that gets more claustrophobic as it develops, as its web of vendetta-style recriminations closes in on the Carbone clan, goat farmers who have diversified into riskier and more profitable businesses.
Writer-director Franceso Munzi has particularized the familial relationships enough for it to stand on its own. (As Tolstoy wrote, all happy crime families are the same but each unhappy crime family is unhappy in its own way.)
