Movie Info

A highly regarded Italian police inspector (Gian Maria Volonte) murders his mistress, only to become part of the homicide investigation that follows. The inspector proceeds to plant clues at the crime scene as his fellow officers either ignore or fail to recognize his obvious tampering. But all is not as it seems. While the killer may have an inside track on fabricating his own innocence, he also seems to be testing the competence and integrity of Italian law enforcement.

Audience Reviews for Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion

  • Oct 06, 2021
    As the titular investigation progresses each scene upends the previous one and you fittingly never feel like you are on solid ground. This is what makes the film's repetitive commentary on authoritarianism palatable as even the audience feels implicated.

    I was disappointed by the pacing of the film, but more so with its content. It was hardly engaging and often enraging (not owing to the situations in the movie, but due to dull execution). The performances didn't help any to elevate the experience. Boring and avoidable "classic" flick, IMO.

    Volonte is goddamned brilliant here.

    Gian Maria Volonté persuasively personifies a suave, spitefully malevolent kind of hitchcockian sociopath. A surreal and strong meditation about how some human beings can be corrupted by power. A fundamental allegory to understand the Italian sociopolitical situation of that time, and possibly to draw parallels with any present so-called democratic system of government.
