Storyline

Angela (Mara Lane, secretary to an important businessman in Italy, Bertolati (Nino Crisman), is an attractive and sophisticated girl, which is sufficient cause for Steve Catlett ('Dennis O'Keefe (I)' (qn), an American-car salesman, to fall in love with her. At her apartment, Stene finds Bertolati dead as a result of a heart attack according to Angela. But, in order to prevent a scandal, Angela urges Steve to get rid of the body without calling the police. Smitten Steve agrees and takes the body to his car with the intentions of staging a car crash. He is about to go do that when he finds out that Angela was indeed the lover of the dead man, and he hesitates. But a new character makes a violent entrance,a brutal ex-convict named Nino (Rossano Brazzi),and he turns out to be Angela's husband.

Double Indemnity - Italian Style
26 March 2008 | by (Bridgend, South Wales) – See all my reviews

A definite B-grade revisiting of 'Double Indemnity'. Of chief interest is the plenty of reasons why this could have been made in Italy, none of which seem particularly savoury today.

This entry drops Wilder's film's cynicism, malice and ambiguity in favour of some admittedly brooding atmosphere. This however also carries the weight of an unfortunately extraneous voice-over.

Starlet Lane can do posing sultriness to be sure, but as a femme-fatale her complexities are insipid to say the least. Considering the Italo-connection, the men's tough-guy antics aren't in the least threatening, and the whole affair lacks much-needed dollops of passion.
