That's exactly the kind of movie I love in the Italian thriller.
Powerful, realistic and a thousand times better than the action packed
but empty other spaghetti features with bloody sequences and so
gratuitous violence. Films that are actually inspired from US movies
such as DIRTY HARRY, BULLIT, THE GODFATHER; copycats, no more.
Italy is the country of mafia and corruption everywhere in the society,
even in the politics. So, the film makers from there have no need to
copy the US products, US schemes. They can do pretty good work with
their own "culture". Film makers such as Pasquale Squietieri and
Damiano Damiani have perfectly understood this. The pictures they
describe are believable, authentic, even if they are shown in a minimal
way, with no artificial and superficial means.
