Storyline

Remo Guerra is a policeman with a double life, who at night with a group of thugs, who he occasionally meets in bars, raids rich people's houses in Rome. Because of his hate for discipline he is soon dismissed from the force and he can continue his criminal life full time. One night he gets arrested and spends 3 years in jail. When he is released he buys a bar and tries to live a normal life, but soon enough the debts he has contracted for the purchase of the bar and his innate rage against society drive him back to muggings and hold ups. One night he tries to rob a very powerful politician... Written by Salvatore Santangelo <pappagone2@libero.it>

Thumbs Up!!!
31 August 2003 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Very, very good. Finally a new italian movie that is actually well made. Based on real events. The dialogues are great and the acting is excellent. Lots of references to classic though such as Taxi Driver but these days every movie refeer to some others...
