A pipipip project.

“I went into this film under the impression that it would be an Italian crime flick. It is; but it’s not the type I’m used to, as instead of all the fights and car chases that I would usually expect from this sort of film, we merely get lumbered with a load of talking and theories that don’t have much weight behind them and thus the result is really boring. The plot focuses on a small group of terrorists. Three of them try to kill somebody; one ends up dead and the other two flee. But there was a last minute change of plan, which causes trouble in the terrorist cell. The problem with this film being so boring is that it’s very difficult to follow. I honestly found it hard to care about anything in this film. It’s not that I need things like car chases to make me like a movie; but I do watch films for enjoyment more than anything else, and this one didn’t deliver anything like that. The film stars Luc Merenda, who despite being great in many Italian films; is not enough to elevate this one above tedium. I have no idea if the film was trying to make a point about something going on in Italy in the late seventies, but whatever the point was went right over my head and I would not recommend anyone seek this dull film out!” ~imdb
