The next Dante cineclub class about “cinema italiano anni ’70” - Wednesday the 28th of August – 1.30pm at Dante’s room – Freeman’s Bay Community Centre.
This time we will watch and talk about the film “Indagine su un cittadino al di sopra di ogni sospetto” (Investigation on a Citizen Above Suspicion) directed by Elio Petri in 1970.
This movie is an example of the Italian political film genre. The film tells the story of a top police officer that kills his beautiful mistress and deliberately leaves clues to prove his own responsibility for the crime testing if the police will charge him for the murder.
Will Justice triumph? Or is the political power above suspicion? As the Kafka’s citation that ends the film says: “the servants of the law are above the law, and therefore, above suspicion”.
Here a taste of the beautiful soundtrack performed during a concert in Piazza San Marco in Venice, directed by Ennio Moricone himself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54WkUiZopBU
