Giovanni Montinaro, son of Judge Giovanni Falcone's chief of security, strongly opposed the film, criticizing the choice of releasing it on the anniversary of the murder of his father and of the others involved in the attack. He let it go when Pierfrancesco Favino told him that the date was chosen by the production precisely as a way to pay homage to Falcone, his wife and his security detail, killed that day in 1992.

In a scene set in Tampa Florida in a very brief shot of a room there is a TV set. The set has those thick black bands around the edge of the screen. This was something only European branded PAL and SECAM sets ever had it was never on an NTSC TV and tended not to be on Japanese PAL/SECAM branded sets either. See more »
I need to look,because looking is important, a gaze can beat you up, it can even kill. As Michel butor said The gaze is the expression of reality.I need to look into the eyes of those I'm being judged by.

An historical film about the mafia penitent Tommaso Buscetta
This film covers more or less 30 years of italian (not only) history, and tells the story of the mafia penitent Tommaso Buscetta, who accepted to collaborate with the judge Giovanni Falcone.
The plot is accurate to what really happened and doesn't leave much to the director.
Great acting by Pierfrancesco Favino playing Buscetta.
