Fernando Di Leo
A sociology student defends her thesis: how Italian men relate to prostitutes. The catch is, she studied the subject first hand, working as a prostitute. Her case studies are presented in several colorful vignettes.
Fernando Di Leo
A silly terrorist- professional- caper action turkey.
Arab oil sheik hires a group of professionals to steal him the secret of synthetic fuel.
Again, as usual, Fernando Di Leo fluffs it! Good cast (Silva, Di Lazzarro), entertaining script with lots of action and explosions and the beautiful locations of Monaco. The result is a hapless turkey that fortunately is funny enough to make you laugh...
Compared to his peers, Di Leo's directing style could best be described as "fit for television". The camera is always fixed in the corner of the room or the street, and as long as no one forgets most of their lines: it's a take. In addition to the lack of visual style, Di Leo also has no sense of pace. When watching a Di Leo film you can tell which scenes were meant to be exciting. The problem is they never really are.
Killer Contro Killers is Di Leo's last film to date, so whatever cult reputation he might have is probably based on the more famous exploitation films he made in the sixties and seventies which I've yet to see.
Released on video in Finland in the mid eighties.
