Lina Ventura excels as a cop investigating the murders of prominent judges.
Dir Francesco Rosi
With Lino Ventura, Tino Carraro, Renato Salvatori, Tina Aumont
Investigating the murders of several prominent judges, a cop (Ventura, excellent as ever) begins to suspect that the case is less a matter of revenge than of political machinations. Francesco Rosi’s dark conspiracy thriller benefits from a taut, intelligent script, broodingly atmospheric imagery and a cast that includes eminent stars such as Max Von Sydow, Fernando Rey, Charles Vanel and Alain Cuny.
