Description: Winner of 1970's foreign film Oscar, this jarring and potent film tells the story of a recently promoted Fascist police inspector who slits his mistress's throat. He then plans self incriminating evidence and makes an anonymous call to report the crime. The police unearth clues that point to the inspector, but ignore them because of his high standing on the force.

"24.4. Herra poliittinen ylirikostarkastaja murhaa naisen, mutta ei herra, ei teitä epäillä asemanne vuoksi. Elio Petrin elokuvassa on paljon sanomaa siitä, miten kaikki eivät ole tasa-arvoisia lain edessä.

Tämä jäi muuten viimeiseksi elokuvaksi, jonka katsoin, kun ikäni alkoi vielä kakkosella. "
