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 drama .
