Rome, 1960s. Three young criminals kidnap and kill a rich proprietor. They invest the ransom money together in the heroine business. It’s the birth of a smart and ruthless organization. Meanwhile, the authorities are absorbed in a fight against national terrorism. A chilling political thriller.
Although many Italians swear by the television series that came after this film, it's a great gangster film that depicts crime in the 70s without the Mafia preconceptions that color Hollywood's idea of Italian crime films.
Well-edited, well-paced and full of great performances.
