Duccio Tessari truly belongs to the great Italian directors, just behind the Fellini/Visconti/De Sica trio. This is a film one would file at first glance among the poliziottescho genre, a subgenre born in the late 60's in the Italy. That would be a huge mistake! We're having here a first class crime movie dealing with social issues and worthy to stay in the Library of the enlightened man that you are. Yes, Sir.
