Eurocrime Documentary DVD (Australian Release) (NTSC Region 4)

$9.99

Eurocrime! is a documentary concerning the violent Italian “poliziotteschi” cinematic movement of the ‘70s which, at first glance, seems like just a bunch of
cheap rip-offs of American crime films like Dirty Harry or The Godfather. But on closer inspection, these films were really addressing distinctly Italian issues like the Sicilian Mafia and red terrorism.

Description

Eurocrime! tells the story of the violent Italian “poliziotteschi” cinematic movement of the 1970s which arose from Italy in the wake of the success of American crime films like Dirty Harry and The Godfather. Hundreds of cheaply produced yet highly entertaining and fast paced films created a genre that found cult appeal in audiences outside of Italy. The rushed methods of production – stars performing their own risky stunts, the practice of “stealing shots” in public, filming without live sound – and with a dangerous bleed-over between real-life crime and movie crime, these movies offered a tough, gritty world, full of mustachioed, macho men killing each other brutally and racing their tiny cars down tiny alleyways. And as this documentary demonstrates, the behind-the-scenes stories were no less colourful!
