    Irene Pappas is the only leading part, who is not miscast.

    No blame on any of the actors, but they just don’t fit the material.

    Still watchable, thanx to Francesco Rosi, but a lost opportunity. 😭😭

    1;05:55 “…so many rich who deserve to die before him”.

    Well well, to sum up the bad reviews are unfortunately right: this movie is a structural mess and a triumph in miscasting. And it is much too long: 80-85 minutes would have done it. (But I have no problems with the dialogue).

    However, even Francesco Rosi may misfire once …

    hard to find.
    imdb lists the film as 2.35:1 aspect ratio, anyone know if that is correct.
    thanks in advance!
