romanzo criminale (2005 film) - michael placido

The Romanzo Criminale film, although highly praised and award winning, was a bit of a disappointment for me, as l felt it did not have the same impact as the series of the same name, which was outstanding.
The story is still based on the real life exploits of the Magliana gang and the book by Giancarlo De Cataldo, but it is also different in places as to what is depicted in the series, and in the series, the events and characters have more time to develop so the tension slowly gathers as a result of that. It has however, made the FPO want to watch the series now, which, fortunately for her, has just started to be repeated on Sky.
A good film, but it would have been better if l hadn't seen the series first.
