If you look with glasses of ideology The Hundred Steps (inspired by true events), with the closing of the red flags and clenched fists of the funeral Impastato, might seem like a propaganda film.

It’s actually a film of civic engagement (which is not ashamed to quote Rosi Hands Over the City) which undertakes the task of reminding us that the fight to the complex phenomenon that goes under the name Mafia is not on a ‘part ‘.
