Free from any semblance of gangster cool, the mobsters themselves are largely mute. The story instead focuses on an individual struggle to break the back of systematic corruption. Utterly compelling.

This is a beautiful film. It is also a story of unrivalled courage by a girl/woman who chose to do what was right. Few films have such a powerful story to tell, and on that basis it is incomparable.
