Well worth catching
15 June 2013 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

Intelligent and very well made Italian crime movie starring, Leonard Mann and James Mason with a generous cameo from Janet Agren. Bit of sleaze, some decent fights and road chases but essentially an involving procedural with good dialogue. Mann has great presence here and Mason is as immaculate as ever. I see Janet Agren made many films but I seem to have seen few other than Eaten Alive.

Ostensibly set in Rome, this purports to have international ramifications and although seeming a little far fetched in one sense, almost naive compared to actual current worldwide terrorist activity. Well worth catching. Good score too.
