Milano Calibro 9 (1972)

A brutal tale of organised crime hoodlums in Milan, it's also a masterpiece in early 1970s interior design and style.

It stars Gastone Moschin as a hood released from prison who is suspected by his boss of stealing $300,000. Obviously such a situation is not good for someone's life expectancy or health.

This is a dark violent tale where everyone seems to be double crossing everyone else. Even the police are at each other's throats though the Commissioner played by Frank Wolff ends up vindicated in the end. The film keeps you guessing as to who has played the biggest double cross and is very well done indeed.

Glamour is provided by Barbara Bouchet but the real beauty is in the interior furnishings. This film could easily be filed under Interior Design Porn.
