Preview- High Crime (Bluray)

A new 4K restoration of the classic crime thriller which helped to popularise the Italian Poliziotteschi subgenre, inspired by the social unrest and criminality in 1970’s Italy. HIGH CRIME, directed by ENZO G. CASTELLARI (Kill Them All and Come Back Alone, The Inglorious Bastards), now available on DVD & Blu-ray in the UK for the first time.

Vice-Commissioner Belli (Franco Nero) is investigating a series of crimes committed by a drug-running gang in Genoa. He approaches the apparently reformed old-fashioned gangster Cafiero (Fernando Rey) for information on the new gang in town, not knowing that Cafiero plans to take care of them himself. Belli’s boss, Commissioner Aldo Scavino (James Whitmore), takes a dossier to the DA on the possible Mafia connections of the gang but is intercepted and the dossier stolen. Belli is forced to step up as the Commissioner and must fight to defend his family from threats by the criminals, before learning of a deal in Marseilles where he may have a chance to take down the underworld organisation once and for all.

Part of the STUDIOCANAL Cult Classics collection, featuring both Italian and English language options and an exclusive set of art cards. Also known by the Italian title La polizia incrimina la legge assolve.
