At the age of 80 and a half-century into his career, director Marco Bellocchio (Fists in the Pocket) returns to the screen with The Traitor — a dynamic drama about real-life mafia boss turned informer Tommaso Buscetta, whose whistleblowing on his former colleagues led to the largest prosecution of Sicilian mafia in Italian history.
Coaxing a star turn from Pierfrancesco Favino as Buscetta and brilliantly capturing an epochal event in contemporary Italian history, Bellocchio interrogates received ideas about loyalty that other movies of this genre use to romanticize its characters. This is a very different kind of mafia drama, one that only a master like Bellocchio could make.
Winner of the Italian Film Critics Awards for Best Film, Director, Screenplay, Actor, Supporting Actor, Editing and Music Score, The Traitor is Italy’s official submission to the Academy Awards.
