Concerto per pistola solista (1970)The Weekend Murders
Instantly watchable and delightfully cheap Italian Giallo film. OK, maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think it's so inept. If you want to watch great Italian Giallo spoofing maybe you should watch this for a base to judge Agatha Christie British films on. I have the R rated version and I've seen more members of the house in this than in a regular Agatha Christie house movie. This is a wonderful movie to have with a ton of friends over. If there were only more spaghetti Giallo movies like this.
This is a take off of the Agatha Christie type films done in the Italian style and set in a stately home in Britian. It is great fun and should be seen. Great use of classical music, zoom shots, red herrings and a little bit of the naughty...I mean a little bit, it was early 70's. Great appearance by Ballard Barclay, the major in "Faulty Towers". It will not set the world on fire but you could do worse. Out of ten, say five.
It was made in 20 days with whatever change the crew had in their back pockets. It's very entertaining.
