Maurizio Merli up against an impenetrable Murder Inc. in Milan
27 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Hunted City" (1979) pits Maurizio Merli as "Paolo Ferro" against an operation of paid murderers in Milan. Is the Mafia behind it? He does not think so, but then who is? Every effort he makes leads to a dead end. The capture of one killer provides no help as the man is in a coma. His own moves seem to be watched. He meets with local Mafia leaders to no avail. He secures the help of Francisco Rabal, a Mafia don with whom he is friendly. Merli suspects a past criminal, Mario Merola, but he now is a busy restaurateur. The best lead might be that the victims of a shooting spate relate to a bankrupt bank.

This solid poliziottescho offers agile fresh direction and several chases through a very well-photographed Milan. The acting is solid. The story is diffuse and not linear, not following a pattern of detecting success. Rather, Merli is becoming bitter at his failure.
