Not a good Bolognini
11 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

The best of this movie is Ennio Morricone's soundtrack ,as gorgeous as ever.

It is an impersonal movie,which bears the appropriate scars of the time .There were so many cops/students rebellions/riots movies at the time Bolognini was incapable of renewing a genre which was so trendy many directors felt compelled to make their own 'bourgeois vs bourgeois" work.Martin Basalm ,who is remembered as the private detective who investigates Norman Bates ' house in "Psycho" had already worked in Italian political movies (La Colonna Infame (1972) Confessione Di Un Commissario Di Polizia Al Procuratore Della Repubblica (1971) .... );he portrays a judge whose son killed a cop during a riot.There's nothing extraordinary in the screenplay and the ending is really the easy way out.

Mauro Bolognini is better at so many other things it's strange he made such a demagogic work with such stereotyped characters .His forte was always the intimate costume drama .
