Storyline

About the search for an adult who pushed a classroom full of troubled teens to gang-rape and murder their female teacher. A hard-bitten Police Inspector named Liberti is put on the case and sets about brutally interrogating the young punks. He finally settles on a blond boy named Fiorello as the one most likely to squeal, but when he jumps from a rooftop, Liberti knows there is more to the teacher's murder than meets the eye.

Pier Paolo Capponi intensely investigates the rape-murder of a teacher, apparently by her students
23 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

No question about it, "I ragazzi del massacro" is an excellent movie. Fernando Di Leo co-wrote and directed, and to him must go the credit for the final product. I felt in watching it that he had mastered the older ways of the moving neo-realist school of films and had succeeded in bringing this story to life with a depth of character and social situation that is characteristic of neo-realism.

The story is unusual. A female teacher of delinquent boys from bad family backgrounds is raped and found dead. The boys were known to have been present and make no attempts to flee. An empty bottle of very strong liquor (170 proof) is found at the scene and a small Swiss coin. Their protection is mainly in their silence and experienced ways of resisting police.

Pier Paolo Capponi does a terrific job playing the intense investigator who tries to break the wall of silence and to deduce what happened and why it happened. In doing so, he focuses on a small subset of the boys and we come to know them. He also works with a social worker and that facilitates the story as well as gives it a richer background.

His interrogations cannot employ force, and he substitutes psychology and pressures of other kinds.

The story is told masterfully and suspensefully. The young men doing the acting are absolutely into their portrayals and realistic.

As Capponi gleans some understanding of what may have happened, the story naturally opens out and away from his initial interrogations. It leads in unexpected directions.

"Naked Violence" is by no means a routine poliziottescho or action film. It stands well above its genre.
