Lee J. Cobb
The son of a dead Italian nobleman and a wealthy American woman forgets the disappointment of finding he has no talent for being a painter by succumbing to the sexual advances of an amoral model who believes in indiscriminate love affairs.
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.
