Lou Castel and Beba Loncar attempt to sell photographs of a murder
15 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Who Killed the Prosecutor and Why" is a decent and solid poliziottescho. That's its genre primarily. It does have in it a murderer whose face is not shown and who murders in various ways, and this resembles a typical giallo formula. But without any other giallo features, this film simply shouldn't be thought of as a giallo or seriously compared to one. In fact, the logic of the story will lead an astute viewer to guess the murderer long before the revelation near the end. This movie is mostly a crime thriller with elements of a detective mystery. There are no chase scenes and no exposes of city crime or police corruption and frustration. It's not that kind of poliziottescho.

The story is suspenseful because of the inherent dangers that face those in possession of photographs of the assassination of the prosecutor near a lonely beach as they try to sell them while not going to the police. In addition, we do not know the identity of the murderer, and the murder sequences are suspenseful.

The police, under political pressure, have for the time being arrested a mafioso who didn't do it. His boss his upset. He's a possible buyer of the pictures to clear his name. A newspaper is another possible buyer. Adolfo Celi, the main cop, is pretty much in the dark. He has some clues but not many. He has to deduce a lot. But most of the story is not told from his point of view or what he's doing. The active protagonists are the photographer (Lou Castel) and his girl friend (Beba Loncar). They interact with Massimo Serato who will help intermediate a sale to a newspaper. Meanwhile the top mafioso, his lawyer, and his dealings get some play. So the story is mainly from a non-police point of view. The murder sequences are all well done.

The picture looks good in widescreen. It's quite enjoyable. Genre fans will want to see this one.
