Top Customer Reviews
Carlos Monzon is also surprisingly believable as the leading character, considering he was first and foremost a boxer (who retired undefeated). His character is touching and sympathetic.
All scenes are done with a reminiscent attention to detail, and even the violent rape scenes are done tastefully enough to show the horrid reality of rape without being overly crude or pornographic.
This is a heavy film to watch, but the gritty feeling left with you after immersing yourself in a corrupt and dangerous world is not beaten by the satisfaction of watching a truly great movie.
NoShame's R1 DVD of this impressive little sleeper boasts an exceptionally good transfer aside from a couple of minor glitches on two shots, as well as one of the more surreal DVD extras of recent years - a 35-minute tour of Merenda's Paris antique shop! Also included are the Italian and American trailers, dubbed English and subtitled Italian soundtracks, poster and still gallery, booklet and a 47-minute CD of cover versions of cues from other Italian exploitation movies.
