Un Omicidio perfetto a termine di legge (Cross Current)

I won't be able to post anything tomorrow, so I'll leave you with the two alternate posters for Tonino Ricci's Un Omicidio perfetto a termine di legge until tuesday. Although made after "The Bird with the Crystal Plumage", the film has far more in common with Lenzi's Caroll Baker thrillers, than the Argento/Martino school of gialli. The film starts off fairly slowly, but picks up after about 45 minutes and the last 30 minutes, which contains quite a few twists & turns, are really quite good. The ending leaves a few too many unanswered questions and loose ends for my liking, but it's an entertaining thriller. Good performance by the always watchable Leroy. Elga Andersen and Rosana Yanni provides some welcome eye-candy, but Rassimov criminally underused and more or less wasted in his role.
