Cry Of A Prostitute
we watch a movie by Andrea Bianchi, we want to know what happened to
him in the from the second half of the seventies in which he turned in
really bad movies like "Malabimba" and then in porn cinema and then all
the rest . Because Andrea Bianchi although here he does reach the
quality of " Nude Per L’Assassino" of two years later, brings
home a more than sufficient work.
A noir homemade and sometimes a bit' shabby but it has several
things that run pretty well. Starting from the fact that Bianchi takes
ideas from Sergio Leone, t from he "trilogy of milieu" by Di Leo and
from Lenzi (not to mention "The Godfather"), reworking the whole thing
and mixing with unprecedented violence and with little respect for the
lives of his characters.
As leader of this river of blood is the right man in the right place,
that is, Henry Silva and his cool expression plays Tony Aniante a
character, for once, tha takes revenge on life.
The collection of violent scenes in huge. A corpse of a child used as
an object to transport drugs, the famous scene in which Tony sodomized
Margie, the uninhibited American wife of a boss played by Barbara
Bouchet, slamming her face on pig’s carcass (in another scene he
beats her on a face with a belt). Or also, the death of a
“picciotto” stuck on a blade for cutting of wood .
Many blood splatters that join western structures, with the anti-hero,
the tough Tony Aniante, who come back from U.S.A., where he learned the
work, and returned to Sicily to work for the clans. And at home, he
develops a plan in which he puts against two Mafia families ina blood
feud that as the results that we have already described .
Our Tony goes around with the attitude of the Far West avenger, with
shades of Django, reaching his high point in the scene where he enters
with Sicilian cart in the mansion of the boss anticipating his arrival
with a whistle ( a bit ' absurd to say the truth, in style "dolby
Unfortunately, "Quelli Che Contano" stumbles into an accomplishment not
brilliant, a flat acting and especially in side plot that mention
Shakespeare with a story similar to the "Romeo and Juliet" useless and
little exploited. But we like the result, thanks to an high and
Aside Silva, we find Barbara Bouchet as Margie a former prostitute of
New York who marries one of the bosses then continuing with his
pleasure, to exice men and drink alcohool.
Vittorio Sanipoli, as Boss Don Cascemi, was a cinema and radio actor.
Extremely versatile took part in a hundred films. In the role of Don
Turi Scannapieco, another boss, we find Mario Landi best known as the
director of " Le Inchieste del Commissario Maigret" but especially for
the authors of this blog as a great and "brilliant” director for
the movie "Patrick Vive Ancora" and "Giallo a Venezia". And finally,
the great Fausto Tozzi , screenwriter and actor, the only one capable
of creating a good and well acted character.
