Italian crime thriller with a difference.
4 September 2002 | by SorsimusSee all my reviews

A better than average Italian crime thriller for two reasons: firstly the story happens during one day, which creates dramatic tension, and secondly there aren't too many characters to follow.

Also the motivations for the protagonists are carefully construed from social and psychological issues such as poverty and masculinity.

Apart from all this the film still delivers on the level usually expected from Italian seventies genre films: lots of unnecessary violence, often sexual, and nudity too.

Recommended for fans of the genre. Released on video in Finland in the early eighties.
