Elio Petri's best-known film is a scathing satire dealing with the abuse of power in high office and simmers with all the psychological tension of an intelligent political thriller.

Enhanced by a striking visual flair and a masterful score by Ennio Morricone, it features a seductively powerful performance from Gian Maria Volonté as an egomaniacal senior detective who murders his mistress and then deliberately leaves clues pointing to his guilt.

Winner of the Best Foreign Language Film at the 1971 Academy Awards
Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 1970 Cannes Film Festival
