Storyline

The movie is based on the autobiography of Horst Fantazzini. Son of an anarchist, he was known in Northern Italy as "the gentleman bandit" because he robbed banks with no violence, using only a toy gun. After a number of trials and escapes, in the summer of 1973 he is held in the Fossano jailhouse in Piedmont when he tries to escape once again. This time things turn for worse and he has to use a real gun and take two policemen as hostages. Written by Alessio F. Bragadini <alessio@sevenseas.org>

I've not seen Silvio Orlando
10 May 2000 | by (vigevano, italy) – See all my reviews

It's near impossible to see an italian film - after 1990 - not acted by Silvio Orlando: this is one of this rare bird. That's true, I know it, Alessandro Haber is present and acts the usual photocopy of himself but we can't have all we desire. Stefano Accorsi is a very good young actor and here is helped by a lot of excellent character actors (Emilio Solfrizzi is great speaking a mixed north-south italian dialect). The story - true - is about a gentleman thief running away from jail and is very well telled by the young director Enzo Monteleone.

Writing credits are by Horst Fantazzini and this is the story of his life, of a thief and a gentleman that today is still imprisoned in Alessandria (Italy).
