'Some call it organised crime. Others call it family'.
The Family is aptly named, and judging by the film cover, with each member of the Manzoni family holding some sort of weapon in hand, sends the right connotations to the audience. Yes indeed this film may contain scenes of violence, profanity, Italian-American gangsters, the French and the renewed partnership of fellow movie stars Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer, previously seen in the classic gangster film Casino (Scorsese, 1995), as Sam Rothstein and Ginger. Directed by Luc Besson, The Family seemingly promises to be a film worth watching.
Another notable actor among the cast list is Tommy Lee Jones who plays the role of CIA Agent Stansfield. After a mafia boss is relocated to France along with his wife and two kids under the witness protection program, it is Stansfield's job to oversee and make sure that no harm falls upon the infamous Monzoni family.
