A low-rent private investigator and former cop is sent to Austria on a job, and while there sees a number of seemingly unrelated coincidences that lead him into a strange web of corruption and decadence.
A little more lighthearted that what I've come to expect from Italian crime films starring Maurizio Merli and his mustache, but it has its moments. Worth a watch if only for Stelvio Cipriani's great score.
Any movie that starts with Maurizio Merli shooting two dudes kidnapping a little girl in the chest in motion so slow it's like the criminals are being murdered by molasses, and compounds said shootings by having one of the kidnappers (accidentally) damn near knock the little girl over while falling backwards... well, you would think there was nowhere to go but down from there. And then the opening credits pack in more gratuitous nudity, incidents of vehicular manslaughter, and random beatings than one usually finds in such things.
And THEN there's nowhere to go but down...
Maurizio Merli stars as a a film-obsessed private eye in this lighthearted Euro-crime thriller in which he tries to find out what happened to a missing high school girl in Germany. Joan Collins(?!) guests stars as stripper.
