Giallo in Venice ★★★½

A very sleazy whodunnit that combines a hell of a lot of softcore sex scenes (many rather dodgy) with some deeply unpleasant murders. The story is pretty badly written: lots of fuss could've been avoided had the cops actually bothered interviewing their one eyewitness properly in the first place, or simply asked one woman for the name of her stalker, while the bulk of the film is spent pursuing a further set of killings that ultimately turn out to be completely unrelated. But it's a case of the journey being more satisfying than the destination, as a highly-sexed coterie of characters shag their way towards untimely deaths, leaving a shaggy-haired detective to clean up the mess while munching his way through a pocketful of hard-boiled eggs. Man, he loves them eggs.
