The Family (Malavita) by Luc Besson, 2013 (R)

with Robert De Niro (Silver Linings Playbook, Killer Elite, Limitless, Jackie Brown, Marvin's Room), Tommy Lee Jones (The Company Men, Lincoln, Hope Springs, MIB 1, MIB 2, MIB 3, Captain America: First Avenger), Michelle Pfeiffer (Scarface, People Like Us, Dark Shadows), Dianna Agron, Ricardo Cordero, John D'Leo, Dominic Chianese, Vincent Pastore

The Manzonis, an infamous mob family, are relocated to Normandy, France, by the witness protection program, where they have some difficulty fitting in. When local problems arise, they respond the only way they know how: mafia style.

This movie is nuts. It has the absurdity of humanity in killers, just like in Leon, and the caustic of a good Tarantino, makes sense coming from Besson... and in a way, I am glad he is back at it, after a long while of not doing much of anything interesting (maybe all this time, he was just becoming a dad or something... just checked, I was right!) Anyway, he is back with of course a perfect cast, Robert de Niro and Michele Pfeiffer are simply delightful. The movie doesn't have much meaning, I guess you are just expected to have a good time.
