really boring b/w thriller with a lot of stars
17 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

A lot of people gather in a hotel in San Remo to attend the local pop festival. When the owner of a music company is murdered, there are a lot of suspects. Will inspector Forbesa be able to solve the mystery?

This is a really bad 60's b/w thriller. It has a weird and boring plot and the whole movie only plays in a hotel in San Remo (It could be anywhere, as you don't see anything else as the interieur of the hotel). At the end of this movie, you are not even interested anymore who commited the crime. It is astonishing that this movie features a lot of the stars of the time like Joachim Fuchsbergerm Karin Dor, Monika Peitsch, Renate Ewert, Wolfgang Kieling and others.

Stay away from this movie, I'll rate it a 2 out of 10.
