Storyline

Colonel Moresco and twelve of his soldiers occupy a Sicilian hospital, taking all patients and doctors hostages and giving an ultimatum to the Italian Government: if Rome will not admit its role in having hided the proofs of the use of depleted uranium's weapons in the Balcan Wars and the subsequent, countless cases of cancer among the soldiers of the Italian Army due to it within 56 hours, all of the hostages will be killed. The negotiator Paolo Manfredi is called in order to save the hostages, not knowing that his wife and his daughter are among them. Written by Cj Spencer

It's All About The Writing, I'm afraid...
13 May 2010 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

A great cast lead by an unexpected Gianfraco Tognazzi, a great Luca Lionello and a much underrated Libero Di Rienzo can't manage to survive the heavy, overwrought and ultimately, unintentionally hilarious screenplay. The close to the knuckle story needed a writer with a minimum of culture and flair. Here, Claudio Fragasso, the director, shows how competent he can be behind the camera but he's tied up to a script that doesn't allow any form of truth to emerge. The characters don't have a coherent psychological path to travel. Everything is on the nose and hammered on, again and again. I felt frustrated because here there is a strong film trying to come out and at every turn, an insane piece of dialogue will destroy the intention to a pulp. Pity.
