Philippe Leroy's recovery is undermined by his enemies
Cross Current (1971) aka "Un omicidio perfetto a termine di legge", which literally means "A perfect murder according to the law), is a well-plotted film noir. Although the general outlines of the plot appear in other noir films, this one has plenty of novel material and twists to make it a solid noir entry in the 70s style.
I watched a full screen print that didn't do justice at all to how this would look in a 2.35:1 print. The film needs a restoration and deserves it.
Philippe Leroy is Marco Breda, a well-off speed boat designer and manufacturer. He lives in a modern villa with his wife, Monica (Elga Andersen). He has a speedboat "accident", leaving him with partial amnesia; but his boat was actually sabotaged because there are those who want him out of the way and want to gain his company.
Breda hasn't regained his stability or full memory and he needs a quiescent environment, but the opposite occurs when murders start to occur, and the persons killed have links to him and his villa.
