Silent Action (15)
(Sergio Martino, Italy 1975, 104mins)
From maverick filmmaker Sergio Martino comes his most explosive and provocative film. When high-ranking military officials turn up dead, all from apparent suicides or suspicious accidents, it’s down to Inspector Giorgio Solmi (Luc Merenda, The Violent Professionals) to find out what’s happened to them. Aided by Captain Mario Sperli (Tomas Milian, The Big Gundown), the two men soon find themselves in the midst of a deadly political scandal that threatens to bring Rome to its knees.
Free Hand for a Tough Cop (15)
(Umberto Lenzi, Italy 1976, 96mins)
From the notorious Umberto Lenzi comes the film that introduced Tomas Milian’s legendary ‘Monnezza’ character to audiences around the world. When the critically ill daughter of a prominent family is kidnapped by a ruthless band of thugs, Inspector Sarti (Claudio Cassinelli, Suspicious Death of a Minor) is forced to bend the rules and oversees the prison break of a lowlife criminal with deep roots in the criminal underworld. The unlikely duo team-up in hopes of retrieving the girl and catching the infamous Brescianelli (Henry Silva, Almost Human), the crime boss behind the kidnapping, before time runs out.
