Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
This Italian crime drama, based on the book Io il Tebano (I, the Theban) by Antonio Carlucci and Paolo Rossetti, alters names in dramatizing the lives of real-life Milan gangsters. In prison in 1980, Michele Croce (Claudio Amendola) tells his story to an investigator as he looks back on his life, seen in flashbacks. Avoiding a regular job, the kid from Southern Italy teamed with his buddy Salvatore (Tony Sperandeo) to pull off small-time crimes, aggressively edging his way to the top of the heap as one of Milan's main gangsters. Independent Italian producer Claudio Bonivento turned to directing with this film.
