Trivia

(at around 0h 21 mins) Police Chief Carraro (Enrico Maria Salerno) stands in front of a map of Rome and points at the place where Fiorella Icardi (Adriana Falco) has been seen refueling her motorcycle. If you compare the movie frame with an actual map of Rome you can tell that he points exactly at Cinecittà (a large film studio that was once considered the hub of Italian cinema). See more »

didn't quite catch fire
28 January 2014 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

This one didn't quite catch fire for me and I had never heard of the director. It turns out that Mario Caiano has made almost 50 movies though not many of note. The most interesting sounding one is a giallo, L'Occhio Nel Labirinto, which I shall seek out although the film in question here being some mix of crime and giallo is less that awe inspiring.

It begins well enough but is never really engaging with uninteresting characters and a missing girl we barely know. After a protracted police procedural section the picture becomes more lurid and there is plenty of young flesh but still we remain uninvolved because of lack of charisma, mundane dialogue and lack of pace or direction.
