Bad Cop Chronicles #1: Confessions of a Police Captain Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Two lawmen play a game of cat and mouse when one suspects the other of being implicated in a murder in this Italian crime drama. Lomunno (Luciano Lorcas, aka Luciano Catenacci) is a notorious underworld kingpin who, along with several of his bodyguards, is killed by LiPuma (Adolfo Lastretti), who then turns his gun on himself. An investigation reveals that LiPuma was a dangerous mental patient with a grudge against the mobster who had very recently been released from a state institution. District Attorney Traini (Franco Nero) is convinced something's not right, and he suspects that police detective Captain Buonavilla (Martin Balsam), who for years had been obsessed with taking Dubrosio off the streets, might have been responsible for LiPuma's release. Buonavilla, however, believes that sometimes justice is more important than strictly following the rules -- and he thinks Traini might have his own hidden agenda. Confessione di un Commissario di Polizia al Procuratore della Repubblica (aka Confessions Of A Police Captain) was one of four Italian features Martin Balsam would star in during the year of 1972. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
