Based largely on real people and actual events, Fernando Di Leo's action-packed film- the final part of his Milieu Trilogy- is his boldest commentary on corruption and the criminal underworld.
A bomb attack in a cinema in Palermo kills all the members of one mafia family except for Cocchi. Realizing that the instigator of the bomb attack is Daniello from another mafia family, Cocchi is determined to revenge. Lanzetta, a hired killed employed by Daniello is told to assassinate the rival family. Following Lanzetta's successful hit he finds himself in the midst of the ensuing gangland war, with Daniello attempting to turn him into the police, his boss' daughter kidnaped, and the rival gang looking for revenge.

Reviews

"Some of the strongest influences on Quentin Tarantino's early films, Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction." - USA Today "The Boss is structured as a rising tide of treachery, the characters coolly sacrificing their closest associates to trade their way up the power chain." - The New York Times
