Storyline

L'avvocato Brà lavora per le assicurazioni ed è insospettito dalla morte di un'assicurata, Maria Mancuso, avvenuta un'ora prima della scadenza della polizza. La polizza è atipica poichè esclude le figlie sposate è può essere riscossa solamente con la presenza degli altri tre figli. Ma Cinzia, la minore, non si trova. Brà prende quindi a cercarla e la sua ricerca avrà successo. Ma questo successo si proverà sotto molti punti di vista, diverso, molto molto diverso da quello che si attendeva l'avvocato Brà. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

An Italian giallo take on an American film noir classic
30 November 2016 | by (NYC suburbs) – See all my reviews

An insurance investigator (Philippe Leroy) tailing an enigmatic young woman involved in a possible insurance scam seduces her to get information but the hunter soon gets captured by the game in Luigi Comencini's somber yet romantic variation on the film noir classic ANGEL FACE, greatly enhanced by a moody Ennio Morricone score.

Although it's not mentioned in Adrian Luther Smith's "giallo bible" BLOOD & BLACK LACE: THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO Italian SEX AND HORROR MOVIES, the film wouldn't have been out of place there since it's reely no different than the ones Umberto Lenzi liked to crank out in the late '60s with Carroll Baker. These psychological (or "bloodless") gialli usually revolved around an inheritance scheme with heirs resorting to homicide and it's a major plot point here as well but despite the murder and suicide involved, the body count remains low until the shocking conclusion (which you might see coming if you're familiar with Simmons & Mitchum's end in the American film noir that obviously inspired it). Pretty good.
