Watch me when I taste my ragout
10 June 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Better than your average giallo with an affable, chain-smoking lead (Pani) and a feisty female companion (Tedesco) uniting to out pace a serial killer whose daring pharmacy murder was witnessed by Tedesco and whose now become the prime target.

Despite the apparent age inappropriateness of the Pani-Tedesco duo, they make a dynamic pairing, plenty of chemistry in spite of their physical mismatch and the succession of admirers chasing her tail (alas, she only has eyes for lucky Pani). Franco Citti who appeared in "The Godfather" has a supporting role, but it's not as significant as one might expect of someone with his profile, though it does lead to one of the more memorable scenes atop a raging waterfall.

The climax is probably marginally better than I'd initially anticipated, and there's solid investigative work done by the leads to reach the conclusion (a bit like finding your way out of a maze). Overall, I found the leads very likable, the music jazzy and upbeat (kudos to Trans Europa Express) and consequently, the film was better than expected though I do think the title "Watch Me When I Kill" remains something of a misnomer with little if any relevance to the mystery. And be sure not to miss the scene when the nosy neighbour sticks her head in the oven to check the beef ragout - buon appetito.
