A journey through the most sensational exploits of the underworld. Thirty years of violent stories sanctioned by news and films. A gallery of faces, testimonies and archive footage.
Director Renato De Maria brings his considerable creative flair to this playful crime docu-drama about the so-called “Ruthless Six.” A clever merger of archival footage, gangster film clips and intense, often comic monologues, Italian Gangsters ripples with a sense of pure anarchy.
