Pierfrancesco “Pif” Diliberto (a renowned Italian TV host and political comedian) wrote, directed, and stars in this subversive, irreverent comedy set in his native Palermo. Arturo (Alex Bisconti as a child, Diliberto as an adult), grows up in 1970s Sicily obsessed with the omnipresent Mafia (his first word as a baby is “Mafia,” not “Mama”). His father tries to reassure him with the disingenuous title lie (it is winter at the time), but people Arturo meets (judges, policemen) keep getting killed. Arturo’s naïve innocence seems to reflect that of Italy itself, where citizens try to avoid conflict and hope that if they ignore the Mafia, the Mafia will return the favor. Arturo’s other fascination is with his lovely schoolmate Flora (Ginevra Antona as a child, Cristiana Capatondi as an adult). He is smitten with her early, and although his passion is not returned he continues to adore her as he grows up, eventually taking a journalist job to work with her. There have been many Mafia stories, but none like The Mafia Kills Only in Summer, with its unexpectedly insouciant yet biting perspective. Winner of the European Film Award for Best Comedy and the David Di Donatello Award for Best New Director. (Fully subtitled)
