A groundbreaking movie musical about the Sicilian Mafia, TO DIE FOR TANO tells the “true” story of Tano Guarrasi, a Mafia man of honor who was gunned down in his butcher shop during the bloody 1988 Mafia war. During his life, his terrible jealousy doomed his 4 sisters to spinsterhood. After his death, Tano’s sisters were liberated to pursue their dreams but his spirit continued to haunt them. Tano’s story is told by his various friends and family through song, dance and recollections.. The soundtrack is by famed Neapolitan composer Nino D’Angelo. TO DIE FOR TANO was a cultural phenomena in Italy as well as a critical and commercial success.. Official Selection: Venice Film Festival, Berlin Film Festival, Montreal Film Festival. Awards: David di Donatello (“Italian Oscar”) Best Score, Best New Director / Italian National Syndicate of Film Journalists: Best Score, Best Supporting Actresses, Best New Director. “A stylistically audacious trash musical about the Sicilian Mafia... amply delivers in terms of freshness, ideas and inventiveness.” -David Rooney, VARIETY. “The film does more than challenge cliches about Sicily’s Mafia culture, it ridicules them.” THE NEW YORK TIMES.
