Sazuma have just sent me a review copy of "Morte Sospetta di una Minorenne" and my thoughts will be online very soon. This is due to be released on September 10th.
At a dance hall, inspector Germi flirts with a young prostitute who’s found brutally murdered only a short time later. On his manhunt for the vicious killer, he’s joined by pickpocket Giannino who gives his hands-on assist to the inspector’s unorthodox investigative methods. The bloodstained track leads cop and robber into a depraved world of white slavery, child kidnapping and corruption. Morte Sospetta di una Minorenne is by far giallo icon Sergio Martino’s (The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh, All the Colors of the Dark) wildest and most incredible film. A masterly, gripping action-thriller that spices up the poliziesco genre with elements of the giallo and a touch of cynical humour. Martino’s regular director of photography Giancarlo Ferrando once again delivers fantastic images that along with Luciano Michelini’s intoxicating music score guarantee for a great movie experience. Sazuma.com proudly presents an uncut and restored version of this long-lost masterpiece of the Italian genre cinema for the very first time worldwide. Cinema all’arrabbiata!
Sergio Martino’s gripping giallo/poliziesco crossover from 1975 is being released on DVD for the very first time worldwide and kicks off sazuma.com’s Italian Genre Cinema Collection.
