Commissario Brunetti risks losing his home when city zoning officer Signor Rossi notifies the building permit wasn't obtained correctly. Brunetii rightly suspects a foul when Rossi makes a fatal fall while inspecting some property of corrupt real estate tycoons couple Massimo and Angelina Volpato. Brunetti wrestles with conscientious objections to saving his home and his luxurious boss's minor drug-dealing accused son Roberto Patta, whose big supplier is ruthless. A homeless, addicted key witness in the Rossi case is murdered. Written by KGF Vissers

It's sooooo German (Derrick in Italian)
28 May 2004 | by ChrisHawk78See all my reviews

All in all I would consider this a nice TV Production that keeps to the book as well as can be expected. The Actors in themselves are good value and the scenery is quite beautiful. But (I suppose with German productions there always has to be a 'but') it is soooo German. Just with the German Pilcher-films the actors do not really manage to give the whole thing an Italian feeling. For some reason or other Germans cannot really act anyway, meaning that their acting will always be recognized as acting. Corinna Harfouch once said that film-making in this country is like everything work. There is apparently little fun on the set and therefore it is always a visible effort. There are smallish things that would already help. As when somebody knocks on a door the other person should not say 'ja' as happens here but instead use the Italian 'avanti'.

Oh well - I suppose the filmmakers should know their job by now. I f you like Brunetti you will find it OK, if you care for the Italian feeling forget it and if you just want a solid German crime film go for it.
