Journalist: There hasn't been a child murder in Venice for years. Got any clues, Inspector?
Inspector De Donati: I'm afraid not. In this type of killing, the motive is psychological. Whoever did it is insane. But with a little luck, we will manage to catch him.

User Reviews

A formulaic but engaging murder mystery
15 February 2004 | by aschepler2See all my reviews

WHO SAW HER DIE? (1972) *** George Lazenby, Anita Strindberg, Peter Chatel, Adolfo Celi. In this engaging giallo directed by Aldo Lado, George Lazenby plays Franco Serpieri, a well-known Venetian sculptor. After Serpieri's young daughter is murdered, he grows impatient with the efforts of the police and tries to find the killer himself, with some help from his estranged wife (Strindberg). The film sticks to a familiar formula: the likely suspects are killed off one by one, and the last man (or woman) standing is revealed as the murderer. But the process feels clumsier than it ought to here, and since the killer turns out to be one of the film's least developed characters, the ending is less than satisfying. Fortunately, though, painterly cinematography and an intriguing score by the brilliant Ennio Morricone help compensate for the weaknesses of the script. Recommended.
