Part of the States of Danger and Deceit: European Political Thrillers in the 1970s Season
In Elio Petri’s visually stunning and beautifully composed film, a corrupt police official decides to show how untouchable he is by creating a murder scene where the evidence can only lead investigators to him. Starring the iconic left-wing actor Gian Maria Volontè who provides a mesmerising performance, this is a sly and slick condemnation of the state and the police from one of Italy’s major political filmmakers of the 1960s and 1970s.
The screening will be introduced by Dr Pasquale Iannone (The University of Edinburgh).
