Great Collection
Manuel Reiner | Naples, Italy | 02/05/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The DVD set is a good source for all "cosa nostra" fans.
Starting from the roots back in sicily to the mass-immigration to the U.S and the raise of the american mafia, that doesn`t forget his roots.The documentary goes thru all the stages of this organization, from the past to the present.But the thing that makes this dvd collection amazing is that shows the raise of cosa nostra back in italy as well...thing that most documentaries forget, because yes, there is cosa nostra in the U.S, but it`s even more powerful in Italy and other countries around the world, were they took the place of politicians and presidents...having more power, ruling over everything.
If this can help people understand...I saw this documentary two times already.Really well done.Even tho i wish they could make a documentary just about the modern days cosa nostra.
A must for all."
High Quality DVD Set

"This is a very good Mafia DVD set. It shows alot of pictures and footage that are rarely seen elsewhere. Very entertaining and keeps your attention throughout. The individual profiles are good, although they all seem to lead back to Lucky. You receive nice background information in the individual profiles and overall, the DVD set is very well made. This is definitely worth having in your collection."
Awsome !
