'definite keeper for both euro-crime junkies!'
23 January 2014 | by Darkling_ZeistSee all my reviews

A truly masterful and riveting actioner from the rightfully lauded high- stylist of Italian crime, Fernando Di Leo. 'Blood & Diamonds' is a definite keeper for both euro-crime junkies and lovers of dynamic, plot- heavy action thrillers. The brooding, Claudio Cassinelli delivers yet another masterful performance, and his main squeeze, Barbara Bouchet is such a sweetie as to engender a diabetic swoon in even the most robust of males! All this macho slam-bang-gangster man whirligig is neatly punctuated by yet another blazing jazz-funk score from the supremely talented Luis Bacalov. A taut, expertly crafted thriller that is ripe for re-discovery.
