Gian Maria Volontè,
A bank cashier, who's allergic to banknotes, quits his job after an armed robbery. He decides to start a new life, as a thief. He starts by targeting a popular former client, a butcher. But being a neurotic Marxist has its drawbacks.
In the 21st Century, where a human vs. human "Big Hunt" is used as an alternative to war, a veteran huntress agrees to kill a "victim" to get a major TV sponsorship deal, but romantic entanglements between the two complicate matters.
When Gian Maria Volonté goes to visit "il questore", the commissioner, Gianni Santuccio, for the first time (min. 37;46), there is a poster hanging on the commissioner's wall with the portrait of Gabriele D'Annunzio, the Italian poet linked to the fascist regime and personal friend of Mussolini, who coined the term "L'Orbo Veggente", the one-eyed visionary, after he lost one of his eyes in 1916. D'Annunzio, was not just a poet, but also very much involved in esotericism. See more »
When the movie starts, a man meets with his lover, and while they begin to have sex, he slits her throat. After washing in the bathroom, he's careful to leave his foot and fingerprints in conspicuous places, and places a thread from his tie under his victim's fingernails.
We then learn that he is the chief of homicide, who's been promoted to a job in political intelligence. The questions remain, why did he murder her, and why did he leave clues implicating himself?
Through flashbacks, we get some idea of what his relationship with the woman was. We also see that some other people become suspects. However, he is in charge of the investigation, and periodically presents even more evidence pointing to himself.
An unusual story. I'm not sure I understood the ending. The video I watched was dubbed in English, and subtitled in Dutch. Perhaps if there is a release of a copy in Italian with new English subtitles, it will be possible to understand the story better.
