Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion
(Indagine su un cittadino al di sopra di ogni sospetto)

Elio Petri

In Elio Petri’s visually stunning and beautifully composed film, a corrupt police official decides to show how untouchable he is by creating a murder scene where the evidence can only lead investigators to him.

Starring the iconic left-wing actor Gian Maria Volontè, this is a sly and slick condemnation of the state and the police from one of Italy’s major political filmmakers of the 1960s and 1970s.

Part of States of Danger and Deceit: European Political Thrillers in the 1970s, a touring season presented by HOME, Manchester, with the support of the BFI, awarding funds from The National Lottery.
