Italy, the 1970s, in the grip of molded politics, corruption and the mafia. A small circle of friends grows up in Rome and decides to use their skills and connections with organized crime and specialists to carve out their own share. Thus Il Freddo, Libano and Il Dandi builds up a rogue crime empire. Commissario Scialoja however gives chase, successfully once he can play on the breakdown of their loyalty, especially from Patrizia 'Cinzia'. Written by
When Freddo (Ice) shoots Roberta's killer (Ciro Buffoni) outside the church at the end of the film he uses a revolver but you can clearly hear shell casings hit the ground after each shot which would only happen with a semi-automatic pistol. See more »
The best Italian movie in the last 20 years. The birth and the growing of a group a of criminals told by Placido quite differently from his big previous works as "Piovra" was. A perfect synchronization of events and soundtrack that accompanies the whole film intensifying the importance of all what's happening in the Italy of those years. Extracted by fully true story that had shocked Italians in the 80' it has no documentary tones but real artistic interpretation of the facts. It is a very brave movie for telling political realities of the opaque seen by a very critical point of view . Fantastic dialogs ( even they were sometimes in-comprehensive for often in Rome's dialect ). I enjoyed this film at list 5 times in a month and I invited people to watch it. Thanks to Placido for having given to these young ( and not ) actors the possibility to demonstrate they are able to play big roles. great movie , it's a seen it's not so well distributed all over world.
