Director: Francesco Rosi
Cast: Salvo Randone, Frank Wolff, Sennuccio Benelli, Giuseppe Calandra, Pietro Cammarata, Max Cartier
Italy, 1962, 107’, black & white, Italian with Turkish subtitles 

This crime and mafia film brought Francesco Rosi international fame and was the first example of his unique mosaic style. Based on the life story of Salvatore Giuliano, a Sicilian bandit and folk hero who played a key role in Sicily’s guerilla war for independence after the war and later turned into a mafia leader, the film begins with Giuliano’s murder in 1950 and narrates with flashbacks how he became a bandit, attacking communists and fighting security forces. Eventually, Giuliani becomes so cruel that even his own men desert him.

He had imagined the court room as a big place. It wasn’t. It was about the size of his living room, with an elevation at one end, with a dais on it. The judges and the attorneys sat there. Below it was an old wooden rail, worn out in some places. That was his place. There was another seat for his lawyer. At the back, about 20 or 30 chairs were stowed out for the non-existent crowd.
