  • Based on Mario Puzo's best-selling novel, THE SICILIAN tells the story of Salvatore Giuliano, the Sicilian real-life bandit leader who took on the church, the state, and the Mafia, hoping to promote Sicily's secession from Italy in the late 1940s. Giuliano (Christopher Lambert) robs from the rich conservative landowners to give to the desolate, serflike peasants, urging them to buy land with the money. However, as Giuliano's popularity grows, so does his ego. Obsessed with his self-created legend, the bandit fails to recognize that his successes are directly connected to the tolerance of his backer, all-powerful Mafia don Masino Croce (Joss Ackland). The don, in turn, sets out to kill Giuliano by convincing his cousin and closest adviser, Gaspare (John Turturro), to assassinate him. Michael Cimino brings Giuliano to life in an elaborate and challenging film. Giuliano's life was also the subject of Francesco Rosi's 1962 film, SALVATORE GIULIANO.
