Mistaken for another man, pursued by the police, caught, accused of drug dealing, processed and unfairly locked in prison. Daniele Baroni was a young entrepreneur, a man like many others beforehis arrest. Inspired by one of the most serius miskates of the italian judicial system since the end of World War Two, the story of an ordinary man and of his fight against the judicial system to prove himself not guilty. Daniele is not a surrenderer. For many years he keeps asserting his innocence, refusing to come to terms with his persecutors. When the situation seems beyond hope, the judicial system starts to move in his favour when a young and brave public prosecutor lady decides to investigate in order to shed light upon a story that is much cloudier than it appeared initially...
An excellent movie of justice gone terribly wrong. It is based in Torino and portrays Daniele Barone as the wrongly imprisoned victim of police mismanagement.
This movie is a tribute to the real Daniele Barilla on whom the story is based. Again Giusepppe Fiorella(Il Grande Torino,Il Bambino sull'Acqua) is excellent as he portrays with emotion and empathy the suffering of an innocent man imprisoned for 7 seven years. It shows the degradation he suffers at the hands of inmates but he maintains his integrity and he is helpless to halt the break down of his family and his business. It is a lengthy movie but it is well worth watching if just to see justice being observed. There are plenty of movie about justice gone awry and heaps of US crime shows but this is effective in its realism.
