The son of a dead Italian nobleman and a wealthy American woman forgets the disappointment of finding he has no talent for being a painter by succumbing to the sexual advances of an amoral model who believes in indiscriminate love affairs.
Strong and convincing prison drama from versatile director, Damiano Damiani, he of Bullet For The General, The Witch and How To Kill A Judge, another crime movie starring Franco Nero. Indeed this is more a crime drama than simply a prison movie, even though it takes place on the inside. I've been putting this to the bottom of my viewing list because of the prison element. I'm not a great fans of WIP and men in prison even less but this is not all about the showers and the beatings and the revenge of that sub genre but more about the corruption of the Italian justice system and the extent of organised crime that make it impossible to conduct properly. Great performance from Nero, of course and a most surprising score from Morricone and some may know of this film only because of the non musical nature of it. More or less made up entirely of odd sounds and general sound effects it is nevertheless most effective.
