Mio Fratello Anastasia Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This Italian comedy shows the gradual enlightenment of an innocent and unsuspecting priest (Alberto Sordi) as he discovers that his extremely generous brother (Richard Conte) is in fact a major American crime lord. It is based on the novel by the Rev. Salvatore Anastasia, brother of ganglord Alberto Anastasia. In the story, set in New York City in the 1940s, the mobster is not only a gangster, but is a sort of Robin Hood figure, protecting the poor Italian immigrants he has taken under his care. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
