Paolo Borsellino (film di Gianluca Maria Tavarelli del 2004)

Si celebra in questi giorni il 29mo anniversario della strage di via D’Amelio: un’occasione tristissima ma utile per citare un bellissimo film televisivo del 2004, PAOLO BORSELLINO, regia di Gianluca Maria Tavarelli, protagonista un memorabile Giorgio Tirabassi.

La trama abbraccia l’infuocato lasso di tempo 1980-1992, anni in cui il magistrato palermitano, assieme a pochi fedeli servitori dello stato, combatté la mafia più ambiziosa ed efferata tra spargimento di sangue, dolorose perdite e un epilogo tragico. Tutto parte da una confidenza del capitano della guardia di finanza Emanuele Basile a Borsellino sui nuovi e miliardari affari di Cosa Nostra, appoggiata da banchieri e politici incensurati: una soffiata che costerà la vita al giovane finanziere ucciso in presenza di moglie e figlia, uno dei tanti caduti in una guerra senza precedenti tra lo stato e la malavita organizzata. Stato che però vivrà anche giorni incoraggianti come la condanna all’ergastolo per i grandi capi, luogotenenti e manovalanza della mafia al maxiprocesso, in un contesto avvelenato dalle collusioni citate prima e radicate persino dentro il palazzo di giustizia e tra le forze dell’ordine, di cui Borsellino avrà testimonianza poco prima di morire dalle rivelazioni di un pentito a Verona, che porteranno il giudice a dire alla moglie Agnese “ho visto la mafia in diretta”. Questo lo costringerà a lavorare incessantemente sulle carte dell’attentato di Capaci e venire a capo di un quadro della situazione che già pur avvolta da mille domande senza risposte si presentava agghiacciante: un compito osteggiato da quel groviglio stato/mafia di cui si parlerà tristemente in seguito e che ai giorni nostri. Molti fingono di non conoscere, nonostante la meticolosa e spietata esecuzione organizzata il 19 luglio 1992, impossibile da realizzare senza fattori esterni.

Il film annovera molti interpreti di talento: Ennio Fantastichini, Ninni Bruschetta, Fulvio D’angelo, Daniela Giordano, Giulia Michelini, Elio Germano, Andrea Tidona, Veronica D’Agostino, Claudio Gioé e Luigi Maria Burruano. Dal momento che gli eventi narrati risalivano a soli 12 anni prima, il film ebbe un grande successo toccando la vetta di 11 milioni di spettatori, nonostante alcune inesattezze storiche come ad esempio l’incontro tra Tommaso Buscetta e Borsellino allorché avrebbero avuto 8 anni: impossibile poiché il futuro magistrato aveva 12 anni meno del più celebre pentito.
