On Feb. 26, Green Apple Entertainment will be teaming up familiar faces in Italian filmmaker Carlo Fusco’s blood-soaked gangland thriller, Sins.
Two men meet on a train (filming locations in Italy), one a priest named Father Leonardo (Danny Glover) and the other, David, a blind man (played by Giovanni Martorana). They talk and it would seem at first glance that they have little in common, but looks can be deceiving.
As the train races through the Italian countryside they share their stories and discover — through a series of flashbacks — that each man comes from an extremely violent past. Both have blood on their hands.
David, a member of a Sicilian crime family, is on the run from Don Mancino (an extremely violent portrayal by Michael Madsen … a “reservoir dog” unleashed, so to speak) and the kindly priest is actually the killer of a New York mobster known simply as Williams (Steven Bauer) … a mysterious woman (Anne Jeffreys), with connections to Father Leonardo sits nearby.

A world of violence, betrayal and murder — shared by these two travelers — would seem to be on a collision course, with the journey’s end … perhaps their own.
Sins is highly reminiscent of those uber-violent gangster flicks that followed in the wake of The Godfather — The Don is Dead, The Valachi Papers and The Stone Killer to name just a few. Green Apple Entertainment should have some “fun” with this one.
