Massimo Carlotto was 19 when he was walking along the street and heard a woman crying for help. He wanted to help her but found already her breathless corpse. Massimo ran home shocked by that sight. Later he told the story at the police station and was accused himself of a murder he hadn't committed. For 17 years Carlotto couldn't find justice: he had to spend some years in prison and then he became a fugitive feeling helpless before the law and *blind* judges. Massimo escaped to Paris, then to Barcelona and Mexico city. All those years he lived in fear. Finally Carlotto was pardoned by the President.
The story of an innocent man accused of a murder. At one moment his stable life turned into a never-ending nightmare. Sufferings,physical and mental pain, humiliation, ruining of all his hopes and dreams, the loss of his true love, his parents, his country. This story based on real events found a reflection in a movie by Andrea Manni *Il Fuggiasco*( *The Fugitive*).
A hard movie which makes us come to think of the sufferings of innocent people and of the Justice itself. Does it exist? And does one have to fight for it and pay such a high price?
Brilliant performance of Daniele Liotti ( as Massimo Carlotto). Giving 10 points from 10 to *Il Fuggiasco*.
