If we now know anything about the inner workings of the mafia, it is partly due to Tommaso Buscetta , the first Mafia boss to turn informant, in the 1980s. As the star witness of the Maxi Trial, Buscetta helped lock up hundreds of his own colleagues. Marco Bellochio fixates on this 'traitor' in his latest film, attempting to understand his actions. Was Buscetta merely trying to save his skin or did her truly show remorse for his crimes?
