Leonardo Ferri (played by Franco Nero) needs peace and quiet to work on his art. So he moves to the countryside, into a house where a woman was killed during the war – but being there also does not solve the problem, in fact he becomes even more nervous, uncontrolled, and unpredictable. A far too little known masterpiece by Italian director Elio Petri – part horror show in stark atonal sounds, part social grotesque of a sometimes disconcerting, melancholy kind.

Like Boris Lurie, Petri holds a distorting mirror up to both the art world, numbed through self reference, and the dull bourgeoisie that worships only the here and now.
