An honest report through a great film
26 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

I was a little girl when Pasolini was murdered and when the news was spread by the newscast, my mother said: "It's impossible! Someone have killed him, they never could convince me that things went so". After forty years this film reveals the true sequence of the events and people who killed Pasolini. I appreciate David Grieco's honest approach. It seems to me that the director's effort is to give us the opportunity to understand the real questions behind Pasolini's murder and set us free to highlight this facts. David Grieco collected a lot of evidence in a sensitive way which I have appreciated in the choose of the sound track, in the photography and in the mounting of the film. Massimo Ranieri as Pasolini is really great with a degree of expressive intensity typical of a genuine talent. I appreciate also the young Alessandro Sardelli (Pino Pelosi) and the sophisticated and very elegant interpretation of Milena Vukotic (Susanna Colussi) and also the realistic and persuasive Tony Laudiadio as the Lawyer. The entire cast expresses an excellent performance.
