After a successful bank heist, Mafia gang members are being mysteriously killed
18 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Ordine firmato in bianco" (Orders Signed in White) is a euro-crime movie that focuses on a bank robbery and its aftermath. The beginning and ending sequences are the best parts of this movie. The middle part is much less interesting.

The first parts show the prelude to a bank robbery and the actual robbery. This is a Mafia-directed operation. All instructions come from afar, with bosses unseen. The gang members are brought together like puppets to execute the robbery. After it is over, they are instructed to lay low in an isolated spot in the country near Abruzzo.

The leader of the gang and the most cool-headed is Luca Albanese, played by Gianni Manera. The gang is interesting in having several women members. In the middle part of the movie, the gang members are being killed, and it's not clear by whom. They change locations, but after awhile the killings resume. The killer is masked. Each victim has white paint on his head. These killings have been ordered. They are the orders given in white. The gang members are in conflict about what to do and whether or not to obey orders. Some are prone to split up and take the loot. Albanese prevails and keeps them together and in place. However, they make some excursions into town and into the mountainous countryside.

The end of the movie reveals what has happened and ties it back to the organization known as Mafia. The prologue characterized Mafia as an impenetrable organization, or at least enough so that it could not be wiped out. The ending depicts the anxiety of those in it who look to it for comfort, obey its orders but yet find that those orders and that organization can turn against them for no palpable reason.

The middle part could easily have been enhanced by providing more clues and even revealing the murderer's identity sooner. That would have ratcheted up the suspense as the remaining victims were targeted. This part of the movie was too confused because it also brought in the deaths of the two people doing the housekeeping.

All in all, this movie tends to misfire, even though it's not entirely without interest for us eurocrime fans. I rate it as 4 to 5.
