I Giorni Contati
23 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

The only famous name in this Martino movie is Mel Ferrer and I guess he was just taking the money and running to invest it in one of his productions .Ferrer could not care less and he really seems to want to leave as soon as possible this muddled political-cum-thriller effort ,a genre that was so popular in Italy at the time .It did produce good works ("Cadaveri Eccellenti" (Rosi) or Elio Petri's "Indagine Su Un Cittadino Al Di Sopra Di Ogni Sospetto" ).Alas ,such is not the case here.

"La Polizia Accusa " (which became in France "The city accuses ") features a "meaningful" scene on a plane where the villain explains Hitler's "philosophy" (Mao's doctrine was the same ,we are told ) to the virtuous cop (played by Luc Merenda whose only claim to fame was his part in the "Chateauvallon" miniseries).
