good story involving corruption in high places
9 February 2013 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

Obscure and unusual thriller starring the most effective American actress, Adrienne Larussa, who appeared in Fulci's great Perversion Story the same year. The male lead is famed Italian actor, Rossano Brazzi, who also here directs. It is a decent directorial effort but possibly the two roles made life a little difficult and there do seem to be moments where a little more clarity was needed. A little more thought might have been given to the soundtrack as well as one or two garish tunes seem to go round and round. Still, its a good story involving corruption in high places (what in Italy, surely not!) and a young women seeking revenge for an injustice done. Sex and violence a bit thin on the ground but Larussa's performance is so beguiling we are kept interested and amused throughout.
