Plot Summary: An honest Judge, with marriage problems, volunteers for a job, in a corrupt area of Sicily, the previous holder of this job having been assasinated along with his Escort. The new Judge, and his Escort (which now contains a friend of the previous Escort)attempt to discover whose palms were greased to allow a local 'Water Monopoly' to develop, while avoiding assaination attempts. Apparently based on true events !!! (IMDB)
Plot Summary2: Escort (Italian: La scorta) is a 1993 Italian crime film directed by Ricky Tognazzi. It was entered into the 1993 Cannes Film Festival.[1]

The film describes the difficulties of an honest, imperiled judge and his bodyguard of four men, trying to clean up a Sicilian town. Corrupt local politicians working hand-in-hand with the Mafia try to prevent them from exposing their rackets.(WIKI)

Plot Summary3 Sicily, 1992: When a high-profile judge and his bodyguard are brutally murdered, four reluctant young cops are assigned as 'LA SCORTA' - Italian for 'the escorts' - to protect the replacement prosecutor from Mafia assassins. But in a country where high level corruption and sudden violence are a way of life, the squad quickly find themselves outnumbered, outgunned and desperately out of time. Even if they can survive the daily threat of car bombs and ambushes, will personal conflicts and backroom betrayals blow apart the nation's most unlikely team of heroes? Claudio Amendola (in his breakout performance) and Enrico Lo Verso star in this white-knuckle thriller from writer/director Ricky Tognazzi featuring a pounding score by Ennio Morricone and based on a true story of uncommon courage. (here)

Plot Summary4 Though the recent corruption scandals in Italy have thrown powerful men out of office, "La Scorta" ("The Bodyguards") considers the impact of anti-Mafia action on lowlier and nobler figures. The film, a smart political thriller, focuses on the bodyguards protecting an honest, imperiled judge trying to clean up a Sicilian town. The story is based loosely on the life of an actual judge, Francesco Taurisano. But the director, Ricky Tognazzi, is looking at broader issues: the pervasiveness of government corruption and the way the bodyguards try to maintain a shadow of their normal lives.


As the film starts, a judge and his bodyguard are murdered in the Sicilian town Trapani. A replacement, Judge De Francesco, is sent from Rome to take over the investigation into the town's Mafia ties, and is assigned four bodyguards, all of them young locals. The captain among them is Andrea, a calm family man with three small children. Angelo is hotheadedly eager for the assignment because the murdered guard was his friend. Another guard is secretly engaged to a local woman but can't reveal this because it might be cause for a transfer, and the fourth is trying to be reassigned to guarding doors or pouring coffee at some relatively safe government building. He would seem to be the smart one, but this film values heroism.

"La Scorta," which opens today at Film Forum, has an understated style and a deliberate pace that emphasize how commonplace its explosive subject is in Italy. Throughout the film, Mr. Tognazzi interweaves details of the investigation with richly textured scenes of daily lives, effectively photographed on narrow streets and in cramped apartment buildings. It is too dangerous for Judge De Francesco to socialize with anyone except his guards, so on one evening he is seen trying to cook a simple dinner of pasta and broccoli for himself, and on others he is invited to big family dinners at Andrea's house along with the other men.

Meanwhile, the judge learns that the local water supply is being controlled by the Mafia and a corrupt Senator. Important documents vanish from De Francesco's office. His own superior seems suspect; it becomes difficult not to suspect everyone. As the film goes on, the action picks up and the danger is inescapable. Even Andrea's children and the judge's young daughter, who has come for a birthday visit, are threatened.

Though the film takes a cynical view of how difficult it is to overcome corruption, it has a simplistic view of honest and evil characters. The good guys and the bad guys are as easy to spot as if they were wearing signs, and the viewer is never wrong about a first impression. That avoids confusion, but adds a note of naivete. Still, "La Scorta" is absorbing and unlike any other film on screen at the moment, offering a fresh perspective on another country's scandals.
