Rating: 3.5/5 -- a bracingly muckraking piece of filmmaking
Nov 7, 2006
The opening and closing sections make use of the stunning, deep-focus photography that gave dramatic life to the open Sicilian landscape in SALVATORE.

Rating: 3/4 -- For the most part, however, the film remains rigorous in its refusal to draw tidy conclusions. Full Review

Product Description:

Rod Steiger gives a tour-de-force performance as a Machiavellian developer in this underappreciated early 1960s gem from Italian director Francesco Rosi. A scathing exposé of city politics and real estate, the vibrantly realistic film looks at the City Council plotting, greed, and inept development that severely damaged Naples; it was awarded the coveted Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 1963.
