Growing-up and loving in the Mafia-ridden city of Palermo. A story that spans 20 years seen through the eyes of a child, Arturo, who is brought-up in a fascinating and terrible city, where none the less there is still place for passion and laughter.
The Mafia Only Kills in Summer is a love story that describes the attempts by Arturo to win the heart of his beloved Flora, a classmate that he took a fancy to in junior school and that he regards as a princess.
Real events that took place in Sicily between the 1970s and the 1990s are the setting of this charming and funny story.
A new way of portraying the Mafia. A film that desecrates the bosses and shows the humanity of the heroes that fought against the Mafia. An ironic smile that is never banal on the most terrible years of eminent killings.
