Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion (Indagine su un cittadino al di sopra di ogni sospetto)

Italy 1970

Details imdb

Seen 26 May 2012

Murder, power and the law

IMDB 7.9/10
Rotten Tomatoes Audience 97% liked it
A delightful farce with Ennio Morricone's score regularly punctuating scene after scene throughout the film. The main storyline is about a murder but we are also regaled with the political scene in the late 1960s Italy. The film deserves an 8.0/10.

My impressions:

A fling, an affair
The games they play became more dangerous
Until death, a murder is committed

He is powerful
Everyone is beholden to him
Many at his beck and call

He uses and toys with them
His version of the cat and mouse game
Trying to see
Whether they will take the bait
Finding the murderer

He tries to divert the attention
To other suspects
Knowing full well
He is safe

But he wants to be discovered
To be cured of his sickness

Others are just too ignorant, careless
That he is the one
They are looking for
