Day of The Owl is a veritable hoot!
23 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

For many years now I have always felt that anything shot by the venerable film-maker, Damiano Damiani is well worth a look; and as far as I'm concerned 'Day of The Owl' is most certainly no exception. The entertainment value of 'Day of The Owl' (aka) 'Mafia' increasing exponentially with a stellar cast including Franco Nero, Claudia Cardinale and Lee J. Cobb. (From what I can gather this might actually be one of the earliest examples of the gritty Italian police procedural that ultimately became the more rumbustious Euro Crime genre which we know and love so dearly! As with many Damiani titles his rich and layered work focuses far more on character development and plot, rather than repeated car chases and wild, ungainly haymakers! (That would be you Maurizio Merli!)
