Quite flat as a pancake, beginning promises too much
11 June 2016 | by ernestiSee all my reviews

This is relatively forgotten giallo and not very widely distributed. I was amazed by the image quality and high quality of production and the beginning certainly promises a bit too much. The long sequence in the moving bus is very clever and shows the early seventies city traffic. They used to film starting sequences like these in the 70's and 80's in Italy. The music's also very good.

It's all downhill from there as the film just declines to an ordinary mainstream film pancake. The film also doesn't have twists and surprises as everything is told and explained which makes quite tiring movie experience. The plot is very linear and easy and also the dialogue is very tiring to follow as it's not very well written and translated and there's plenty of it and on top of that it's all dubbed. By far it's not the worst dubbing that i've seen but certainly having lots of dubbed dialogue in a crime drama certainly hinders any film.

Also the group of the bad guys were very unbelievable and the final confrontation with them is really disappointing and beyond generic. Throwing a pile of dirty laundry on a villain who then suffocates and another one's head being pushed on a washing machine door who also suffocates. Looks too easy and stupid for the high production value this film has.

Acting's actually good if compared with other giallos but it can't save this dreadful film. How can such a wonderful starting sequence end up in a such a disappointing film. It's amazing.
