Storyline

Rimini, 1991. For more than a year, the uno bianca gang - they always use a white Fiat Uno - has plagued the area. Their crimes are violent, sometimes killing carabineri, and there's no particular pattern: a bank one day, a petrol station the next, extortion of a small business the next. Are they terrorists? A foreign gang? Tied to the Mafia? After a particularly bloody shootout, two detectives are assigned to start fresh: they go through the notebooks of previous investigators and they interview a few witnesses again. They find a pattern in the crimes and predict the next assault, but the special task force in Bologna is dismissive. Can they carry on alone; how far will they get? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

User Reviews

Michele Soavi directs this made-for-TV cop thriller. Bravo!

Well, you've gotta admit--Michele Soavi certainly knows how to make a good movie. And this two-part serial is no exception. Kim Rossi Stuart plays a cop who is assigned to investigate a series of violent bank robberies and cop-killings. While on duty, his friend is shot in the head by one of the criminals linked to the gang. Stuart then goes on a personal crusade to nail down the leader of the criminal organization. This film is a colossal production running somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 hours! Although it bears many of the earmarks of American television productions, it nevertheless proves to be an extremely enjoyable, action-packed, and suspense-filled ride. Soavi is another one of those pioneering Italian directors who now find themselves doing work for television--just about the only guaranteed market in Italy these days. Anyway, he turns out this film with a mastery that keenly reflects the years spent working with Deodato, Argento, D'Amato, and others. I doubt this will ever get an American release, so any version available will probably be in Italian. However, this does not in any way detract from the enjoyability of this film. By the way, Kim Rossi Stuart is the son of veteran Italian actor Giacomo Rossi Stuart.
