Editorial Reviews

(In Italian with English Subtitles)
Murder, betrayal, office politics, temptation... it's all in a day's work for Detective Salvo Montalbano.The series is filmed in the ancient, sun-washed Sicilian city of Ragusa, and is based on the international best-selling mystery novels by Andrea Camilleri. Episode 23: Angelica's Smile - A series of robberies take place within the singular Vigata s elite. One of the victims is Angelica, a young bank manager: gorgeous, magnetic. Montalbano is bowled over; she suggests the heroine of Ariosto's Orlando Furiouso and not only for her name. Salvo falls to her feet like a schoolboy and tries his best in fighting a difficult battle to resist her. Meanwhile, the investigation continues until he realizes that the robberies are only a cover for something completely different, much more serious and tragic. Episode 24: Mirror Effect - Somebody's trying to confuse Detective Montalbano: a strange villa, a love story out of Shakespeare, some mysterious explosions and a couple of dead bodies complicate the question of what is and isn't real. A game of mirrors seems to culminate in a warning to Montalbano himself. One thing is certain; behind this strange case there is something really big and the detective has to find out what it is. As the case gets more difficult, something slips out of Montalbano's control.

I haven't received these subtitled episodes yet, but expect them by the end of September. But, I have watched the unsubtitled episodes on YouTube, and own all of the previously released episodes. This is the best detective series bar none, even those from Masterpiece Theatre and it is hard to top those. Luca Zingaretti has captured all of the quirky features of Montalbano (from the Andrea Camilleri novels), and his cohorts against crime are perfectly cast. The Italian/Sicilian is "rapido" so I like to check my understanding with the "sottotitoli" which are very well done and are translated beautifully.

I hope this is not the last of the Italian produced series, as Camilleri is still writing at 86 or so years!!!

Episodes 23-25 have just run on French TV dubbed in French. Sicily is still gorgeous, Mimi has a silly mustache, A different but tall, thin and blonde lady plays Livia, the interchanges with Catarello border on slapstick but the series remains completely delightful, although, to me, it doesn't work in French. I've bought all the episodes so far and certainly will purchase these . . . .and be glad for the Italian with English subtitles.

Really different. I don;t like detective stories but these are fun. I think we Americans don't pay attention to the rest of the world much. Watching Montalbano and his crew find the bad guy gives you insight into the European mind.

We love this series of Sicilian murder mysteries! The plots are excellent. There is intrigue, humor, culture, and insight into the daily lives of a very interesting people. We can't wait for the next release!

I have watched all of this series. These last two episodes are nearly the same story in both 23 and 24. Both revolve around women seducing Montalbano. It seems the author has given up producing a real story that intrigues and holds interest and is playing around with the attraction of the main Character. Livia is no where to be seen. The other characters are tiny parts. Both these episodes are very disappointing. Not worth buying frankly. No where near the level of the other stories.

It's a lot of fun watching this series, and helpful to hear the language spoken in a conversational way. If, as one actor said in an interview, they are speaking with a "Sicilian accent", I am not skilled enough in Italian yet to notice the distinction. They speak clearly, and I find it easy to follow.

The Sicily and stories of acclaimed writer Andrea Camilleri, plus an outstanding director, DP, cast, and crew, together for over 15 years, movie-length adventures, subtitles expertly done by the BBC... What's not to love? This DVD has the last two episodes of the original 24-episode series. Seems like there was less time and budget for later #'s 25 & 26, but everyone is still there. Actually best to start from the beginning -- #1, The Snack Thief -- so you can gradually get to know and savor this world of Commisario Montalbano and the people, places, food, and culture of his/Camilleri's beloved Sicily. Enjoy! -JM

Montalbano is a series for serious detective fans. Each episode begins with two quite different mysteries. Montalbano prompts them to unravel themselves, sometimes with a little unorthodox detective work. Episodes also continue the stories of relations between the Sicilian policemen, their wives and friends and are set against a background of modern day Sicily, the Mafia and societal corruption. They are superb in every regard.
