crime drama with a twist
16 January 2001 | by (Zürich, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

This crime drama from the director who was to become the Italian goremeister about ten years later delivers an interesting story about relationships, jealousy and , of course, murder. In the end, the film even becomes a statement against the death penalty (the story takes place in the U.S.).

Although there are certain elements of giallo in here, I wouldn't call "Una sull'altra" a giallo; it's really a rather classic crime story concerning "indecent affairs" (on which some of the English titles refer).

All in all a good film, although the average Fulci-fan probably will be disappointed about the lack of any gore in this one.
