an interesting project by rossella biscotti. "‘the undercover man’ is a short film about the FBI agent joseph pistone also known as donnie brasco. the story of his undercover operations in the new york mafia was already legendary through the movie donnie brasco, with johnny depp and al pacino. rossella biscotti tracked-down pistone and made a shivering yet strikingly beautiful portrait of a man, who presents a character built on fictitious identities and cinematographic representations, in the film-noir genre." see more here.
