Slap the Monster on Page One
Sbatti il mostro in prima pagina
A right-wing newspaper tries to pervert the course of justice in the case of a murdered girl.
Dir Marco Bellocchio
With Gian Maria Volontè, Fabio Garriba, Laura Betti
A smart, and still relevant, story of how a right-wing newspaper tries to pervert the course of justice by influencing a police investigation into the murder of a young girl. Although more of a genre commission than an original work, Slap the Monster on Page One is a tough political thriller that packs a sharp punch.
