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>

Well-done and engaging thriller
4 April 2007 | by pattireesSee all my reviews

An excellent movie in two parts that was made for Italian TV. A fantastic production for a TV movie. After I watched part one, which is about 90 minutes, I could hardly wait to see the second part but I had to wait a week b/c it was being shown at the Italian Cultural Institute. It was worth it. Great acting by a talented cast, in particular the two main actors, Kim Rossi Stuart and Dino Abbrescia gave memorable performances. Also Valeria Melillo is perfectly understated in her role as Rossi Stuart's wife. Say what you will about Italian TV in general, this movie and all the episodes of Commissario Montalbano (if you haven't seen this series, check it out, it's fantastic) prove that Italian TV can surpass even big budget American TV productions in terms of quality of acting, editing, and direction. Soavi must be a great director to generate and sustain the edge of this movie for 3 hours. Worth seeing!
