Synopsis

Edoardo Nottola, is a builder and city council member in the ranks of the right wing party. Following some construction in a crowded lower class neighborhood, a number of buildings under construction collapse and leave two dead bodies and a child without his legs.
The incident, as could be expected causes protests and another member of one of the opposition parties calls for an inquiry on the case to shed light on any violations that might have occurred.
The incident is due to the careless and cheap manner in which the builders are conducting the speculation but the issue is not on the agenda and cannot be discussed…

 

One of the finest political dramas ever made – a ferocious, invigorating exploration of civic corruption in post-war Naples with the intensity of the best Hollywood thrillers.
