About The Traitor 💬

THE TRAITOR tells the true story of Tommaso Buscetta, the man who brought down the Cosa Nostra.

The real-life of Tommaso Buscetta the so-called "boss of the two worlds", the first mafia informant in Sicily 1980s.

Tommaso Buscetta swore an oath to the Cosa Nostra. But in 1983, the Mafia betrayed him. SO HE USED THE ULTIMATE WEAPON - THE RULE OF LAW.

"The Mafia's not invincible. It had a beginning, it will have an end."

Fausto Russo Alesi as Giovanni Falcone

In the early 1980s, an all-out war rages between Sicilian mafia bosses over the heroin trade. Tommaso Buscetta (Pierfrancesco Favino), a made man, flees to hide out in Brazil. Back home, scores are being settled and Buscetta watches from afar as his sons and brother are killed in Palermo, knowing he may be next. Arrested and extradited to Italy by the Brazilian police, Buscetta makes a decision that will change everything for the Mafia: He decides to meet with Judge Giovanni Falcone (Fausto Russo Alesi) and betray the eternal vow he made to the Cosa Nostra.


THE TRAITOR is more the story of Tommaso Buscetta than of the Cosa Nostra.

Tommaso Buscetta is fickle and constantly on the move, both in his life and in personal relationships. He's out of the ordinary, intelligent, charming, effective and endowed with natural authority. A mafioso loyal to the Cosa Nostra, but also to his own personal principles, he's not afraid of challenging authority.

From the end of the 1970s to the start of the 1980s, he faces the growing strength of the Corleonesi, headed by the uncompromising Totò Riina. This new small group has no mercy and flouts the basic principles of the Cosa Nostra: they kill women and children and eliminate whatever gets in their way. This group holds no place for Tommaso Buscetta. When in 1982 he moves to Rio de Janeiro with his beloved wife and children, he aims to end his involvement with the mafia. But there's no such thing as leaving the mafia - the organization hunts him down. However, the Brazilian police beat them to it and extradite him to Italy.

Buscetta then proposes a deal to the Italian judiciary: he'll cooperate and dismantle the mafia in exchange for his own protection and survival. He's soon confronted with the imposing, inflexible and tenacious Judge Giovanni Falcone, and we've plunged into the depths of the Sicilian organization: murders, shootouts and scams. All this provides the backdrop to Buscetta's account, who turns out to be the Cosa Nostra's biggest mystery: no one knows why he's collaborating. He seems motivated by revenge and the desire to dismantle a mafia no longer in line with his values. Buscetta is a traitor for deserting to the enemy, but he doesn't see himself that way.

In the course of his confessions, he highlights the gulf that exists between 'his' mafia and that of the Corleonesi. He intends to do justice to the true Cosa Nostra in this way. He makes Totò Riina the ultimate traitor of the story.

Betrayal is a recurrent theme tirelessly explored in the film, precisely because it makes us reflect on change. Can a man truly and profoundly change in the course of his life or is it just a pretense? Is change a way of healing, of repenting? Did Buscetta, who refused the label of "informer" all his life, embark on this process of healing, of redemption, to become a new man? Or did he create his own justice?
