A dark and gritty minor classic of Italian crime cinema
Joe Dallessandro, one of Andy Warhol’s superstars, stands up to the Mob and lends the film international cult status
A crime movie set in the dark, gritty and often brutal world of organised crime of the Camorra. Pasquale Squitieri sets up an extremely effective plot, full of moments of tense action worthy of Sam Peckinpah, supported by a no-frills narrative structure that never lets up. The charismatic Joe Dallessandro (already an Andy Warhol superstar) brings the legend of Scarface up-to-date in an inner-city Neapolitan setting. A minor classic, widely considered a cult film internationally.
A young Neapolitan delinquent is at war with his boss. He goes to Rome to gather a team of henchmen, then returns to Naples to take his revenge. Old scores are settled, but the Camorra does not forgive.
