irresistible
7 February 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Nothing original in the story here of mafia guys falling out, something going wrong and the wronged one seeking revenge. Directed with such slickness by Duccio Tessari, however, that it is a great watch. Great locations, including Copenhagen, Milan and Sicily even if the weather in the Northern cities looks so dismal. Interiors are also shot with fine Italian style, colourful fashionable furniture and lampshades, a fish tank, of course plus the essential bottles of J&B here and there. Alain Delon persuades with often no more than a glance and is ably supported by Richard Conti and others. Erika Blanc and Rosalba Neri regrettably have only the tiniest of roles but Carla Gravina (The Antichrist) is great - she spends half her screen time laying dishevelled and bloodied but scrubs up nicely for the last section and does well alongside Delon. Predictable, as I say, but still irresistible.
