excellent Giancarlo Giannini and the lovely Ornella Muti
Solidly directed thriller concerning organised discontent with the Italian government and police, who it has to be said, never come out well in Italian movies. Here this is a co-production with USSR so this may suggest a little bit of encouragement coming from the communists in the Soviet union in support of their comrades within Italy. The movie itself is more concerned with 'the fight for freedom' and the penal consequences than with your usual Italian politza action. We have killers and car chases but this is far a from glamorous portrayal, apart of course from the excellent Giancarlo Giannini and the lovely Ornella Muti. Decent dialogue, always involving and just that little bit different.
