A fantastic and dark detective film from the director who inspired Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds
The very best of 1970s Italian genre cinema
In part a very dark film that delves into the world of drugs without any intention of sugar-coating the reality it depicts. In part a detective film that unleashes a series of breath-taking chases and shootouts. And then the crowning glory, a perfectly paced and wonderfully gripping finale directed by Enzo G. Castellari, the man who inspired Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, with which he confirms his reputation as a skilled weaver of fantastically scripted plots. If you’re looking for the very best in Italian 1970s genre cinema, you’ve found it. Featuring the charisma of Fabio Testi and David Hemmings, and the music of Goblin.
An agent goes undercover as a drugs dealer to infiltrate the heroin trade in Rome. He will have to go it alone.
