Strategia del ragno (1970) - TSPDT #751
A son comes back to his old Italian village to investigate the killing of his famous anti-fascist father, only to find that the stories around his death don't seem quite true.
The concept of the story is certainly a nice one. The script, very psychedelic and loaded with way too many political references. The film was a big hit on RAI when they first aired it, but it's hard to watch and although one can guess at later accomplishments.
Maybe I'm missing something here, but I doubt it, since the film is really slow. But if you're Italian and remember the late sixties well, you might find a treasure - forever lost to me, unfortunately.
