In this violent action thriller, Kim Rossi-Stuart (THE NAME OF THE ROSE) and Dino Abbrescia (I'M NOT SCARED) are detectives on the trail of a criminal gang perpetrating terrorist attacks along the Rimini coast and getting away each time in a white Fiat Uno. When pursuit of the gang ends in the death of their superior officer, the detectives go beyond the law to bring the killers to justice only to find that their identities are as shocking as their crimes. UNO BIANCA finds Michele Soavi employing his trademark suspense tactics to give added tension to this fact-based action film, co-scripted by veteran EuroCult actor-writer Luigi Montefiori (RABID DOGS). NoShame Films is proud to present the American premiere of this two-part, three-hour film, originally broadcast on Italian television and unlike anything you've ever seen in prime time.
NoShame's two-disc DVD release of Uno Bianca is first-class in every way, with an abundance of bonus features (interviews, behind-the-scenes featurettes, a photo gallery, etc.), and an informative, well-written booklet of background detail and cast/director biographies. Just for fun, there's even a cardboard cut-out so you can make your own miniature white Fiat Uno! For discerning DVD collectors everywhere, it's this kind of care and attention that distinguishes NoShame from other, less fan-oriented DVD distributors, and Uno Bianca is entirely worthy of this high-class presentation. --Jeff Shannon

Kim Rossi Stuart plays a beach patrolling cop in an Italian resort town. When he hears some local policemen were gunned down by the notorious "UNO BIANCO" gang, it peaks his interest. But, it isn't until his commanding officer is gunned down by the mad, money-hungry gang members, that he decides to put an end to the terror. Thus begins his investigation, which points the accusing finger towards a policeman who may be a member.
High suspense and an eerie soundtrack make this a great entry in the Michele Soavi collection, even though it's a big departure from his Gothic Horror roots.
3 hours and 20 minutes of subtitles, however easy to read, might make you miss some of the visual elements. Still, worth a look.
thriller, suspense movie, of the highest quality (although released
on TV, in Italy). Quality is important, viewers, want the images,
colors, sequences to be crisp, crystal clear unlike that what is
often filmed, intended for and shown on TV. This work suceeds in
The 3 hours doesn't constitute a waste of time, or even, poor
editing. Not at all. It manages to build up very quickly a tension,
suspense and thrill from the opening moments of the movie, until the
very end. The dialog is in Italian, and is well understood to those
fluent in Portuguese, and perhaps, Spanish to a less degree. The
English subtitles don't get in the way of the action.
This picture is quite fascinating and is a treat, for viewers to tag
along for the ride, on an "Internal Affairs" matter of police. They
manage to narrow down, get evidence and apprehend a gang of
perpetrators that were the plague of a home town, in Bologna and
Rimini, Italy, not unlike a gang of anarchists, weapon-obsessed,
looters who caused deaths, havoc, fear and panic in the population
on a regular basis for over a year until their capture, in a
blatant, crude fashion, involving stick-ups in financial
institutions, and such.
The acting is charismatic, credible, focused laser-like over the
duration of the picture.Read more ›
