Less car chases and gunplay, more character and atmosphere
A somewhat noir- ish 70's Italian crime film.
Diamond robber, who got left behind into the hands of the police, gets out of prison and teams up with the funder of the robbery, who never saw the loot, to get even with the other members of the gang.
Some fans of the genre would describe this film as slow, I'd call it deliberate: time is taken to create the drama and the relationships between the gang. There are less car chases, shootings and fisticuffs than in some Italian crime films, but in comparison the atmosphere is moodier, more noir- ish. Kinski, as usual, is in a supporting role but manages to steal the show. As usual.
Actually, this one looks more like the crime films made in France at the time.
Released on video in Finland in the early eighties.
