La Maffia Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

The names have been changed to protect the guilty in this crime thriller that is based on the exploits of Argentine mafiosi in the '20s and '30s. Francesco Donato ([[Performer~P66213~Jose Slavin~joseslavin]]) is the current godfather of the Argentine mafia, but his assistant Luciano ([[Performer~P720~Alfredo Alcon~alfredoalcon]]) wants his job. He believes he knows ways to expand their business beyond prostitution and protection rackets. His kidnap and murder of a prominent millionaire gives the mob really bad press. Indeed, the resulting public furor results in the police cracking down hard on all gangster activities, which is not good for Luciano's longevity. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
