Rare Italian thriller not many have seen
10 June 2011 | by (Athens Greece) – See all my reviews

The movie is inside a cinema screen when a group of people arrive to watch a movie. Suddenly when a shot is heard from the movie someone is shot for real inside the cinema and the police arrives to investigate the murder. Who killed him and who is the killer ...?

The police asks everyone to sit in their same positions as before and try to watch the movie again but when the gunshot is heard from in-the movie for the second time another person is shot for real ! this makes things more complicated for the police as there is no motive or suspects or evidence of gun found !!

The ending is what you don't expect ! A must seen movie I saw from a very old video tape copy a friend gave me ! don't miss it !

In Greece this movie was released as "Eglima choris dolofono" translated as "Crime with no killer" .
