Just got done reading "Malavita" by Tonino Benacquista in preparation for "The Family" starring Reobert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Tommy Lee Jones. It's a tad depressing that the trailer promotes Luc Besson as "The Producer of 'Taken'" when he awesomely made his mark in the '90s with "Le Femme Nikita," "The Professional," and "The Fifth Element." The book has a nice balance: mafia honor, hierarchy, and the witness protection program with glimpses of family dynamics. Knowing Besson and his childhood strain, he'll keep the parallels of the mafia and playground dynamics with the 14 year-old boy and 18 year-old girl with those of the mafia. It's all about power. Tommy Lee Jones doesn't have a name listed on the IMDB, and from the preview he must be Quintiliani, who is Italian judging by the name. This might be tough for fans of the book. Even tougher is De Niro's character is supposed to be approaching fifty when he's almost seventy in real life. Besson, however, can pull this off: he's balanced comedy and great action before with the aforementioned. This could be a great movie, one of a kind, that will find its audience of grownups who haven't lost their childhoods. That's why this move will matter.
