Enzo De Caro hunts for a serial killer of music students
Enzo De Caro is a cop whose wife was killed by a serial killer. He has a relationship now with a psychiatrist or psychologist. A new and different case is on his platter. A teacher at a music school has been murdered and a sign incised on her stomach; an older woman witness was also slain. This occurred after a recital of several students marred by a bad note played by the pianist. One of the students is being treated by De Caro's amour; and he's being threatened by a hood for money. The famous head man of the school is an overbearing guy with some sexual skeletons in his closet. As befits the giallo genre, the black-gloved killer is not seen. Another murder occurs, this time of a young man who was in the music group. Then a threat against the psychologist is made, followed by yet another murder with the ritual sign. De Caro is taken off the case because of its serial killer nature and his past history, but he pursues it anyway through his close assistant. He's haunted by the fact that the bureaucracy's slowness led to his wife's earlier death.
The IMDb rating of 5.4 is about right, indicating a below-par movie and a below-par giallo. It's done in a bland way, with such an even tone that it's like a homogeneous soap opera made for TV. There's no style to it except a kind of shadow remembrance of a once-passionate genre.
