Italian pulp

Great!!!

Great Italian pulp movie, a classic for the genre! "Roma l'altra faccia della violenza(trad.:The other side of violence)" is a police movie where violence, theft and rape are caught in a mixture of raving unconsciousness and pure havoc. With a great appearance by Franco Citti, this film stands up for one of the best Italian pulp movie ever made. Quite similar to "Roma Violenta" and "Milano Violenta" with Maurizio Merli yet not the same cup of tea. It deserves more rudeness, rawness and pathos for the audience...

Definitely a good film: those who love Quentin Tarantino should see it and love it to death. Enjoy!
