It is a great movie! Great actors, great director!
21 July 2004 | by dashnor_thaciSee all my reviews

I have seen this movie many, many years ago, may be more then 35 years. Even it's a long time I still fill the strong emotions remembering this movie. I have seen some other movies of Damiani and I am sure his movies are all very beautiful. The main actors, Alberto Lupo, Sergio Fantoni, Belinda Lee, Sylva Koscina etc are very good. They have realized in a very high level the roles, the characters. By realizing the movie black & white the director Damiani have emphasized in a very beautiful artistic way the fighting between the good and the bad inside of the human being, the facing with the conscience of a person that have committed a crime.
