A Serious and Reflexive Movie!
4 April 2001 | by (Brasilia, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This is a serious and reflexive movie about corruption in the Italian police and the influence of politics in the realm of the organized crime. Gemma and Balsan made a good pair and the story is very plausible, really down into the reality. Maybe the screenplay could be a little less complicated and Damiani's directional pace just a little less frantic because, sometimes, the viewer feels lost. But that's a good entry and really worth a look. I give a six(6) to this one.
