A hungry young buck who aspires to be a career criminal starts out working at a warehouse for a gangster, and because of his ruthlessness and dependability he begins to ascend the ladder of organized crime.
A good film directed by Squitieri. In my opinion it is one of the best in the context of Italian crime films. In particular it has a good screenplay and less violence and action than the previous films. It is played by important Italian and American actors like Tony Musante (who is well known in Italy for his role in "l'uccello dalle piume di cristallo"), Franco Nero, a famous international actor and a certain number of supporting role actors like Ivo Garrani in the role of old "mafioso", Luigi Montini, Venantino Venantini who play the members of "family" and not very known actors like O. Dell'Acqua, A. Freeman, B. DiLuia, T. Palladino actually employed as stuntman in the 70s Italian crime films. This film is one of the few in which police and "carabinieri" collaborate.
It sounds strange but it was shot in English, then as always dubbed in Italian. Lots of actors dubbed themselves and I am convinced that it is more realistic, because the film's characters haven't that typical false Sicilian accent. If you keep attention to all the Italian 70s and 80s films when the plot consist of "mafia", they have that silly false pronounce. Will there be the copy in direct sound since all the actors played in English?
