We love this movie so much

There are some really, really bad movies out there. The writing and directing is really bad but the movie is usually also depressing or disturbing and not fun. Ginostra is the exception. This movie is so bad. The actors aren't bad but you get the feeling that the director directed them in a way which makes them all seem way over-the-top melodramatic. But the best thing is the horrible writing and the plot. We watch this movie about once a year or once every couple of years so that it doesn't lose it's freshness and we laugh a lot. I don't want to reveal any spoilers because it's more enjoyable to find out just how bad the storyline and the dialogue is as you go. It's almost 2 and a half hours long but watch it when you have time to watch it in one sitting. Highly recommended to watch with other people who appreciate the filmmaking process.

An actors movie.

Whilst the general public panned this movie as is inescapably one of the best acted roles for Harvey Keitel.
Non verbal communication is an art that only a few actors can aspire to.
The engagement between Harvey and the boy that embraced fear..conflict...mistrust and hope was largely a masterpiece in non verbal acting. Despite the somewhat confusing editing.....the close ups of eye to eye contact between the two main stars is an achievement in excellence.

A hidden gem that I recommend to friends..,.

This is a film I recommend to my friends. A bit too long, and the plot slows down too much, but Harvey Keitel carries the story very well. Especially of interest to those who like European cinema.

This was a boring movie. About an FBI agent looking into a murder. He travels with his family(stupid move) putting them in danger as well as the boy, whose father is murdered, he is trying to get info from.
The boy is first seen almost naked near a public bath or swimming pool. He is beautiful and is a bright spot in an otherwise bland movie.
I wouldn't buy this film again, although it does have its moments

Review of Film Ginostra
Verified purchase
I like this film as the characters performed very well and the scenes progressed with no flashbacks. I really don't care for dark scenes with very little light as details are not clear and you have to use your imagination as to exactly actors are doing. It is worth buying from Amazon.

Volcano eruption of corruption!
Verified purchase
Great, elegant crime thriller set in Sicilian Islands. Harvey Keitel rules as a New York cop sent to Itally and trying NOT to fall under the spell of the corrupt life there.
