The Red Tent (1969)

The commander of a failed 1928 Arctic airship expedition is remembering the events of the "Italia" airship flight, crash, and subsequent rescue efforts. The "ghosts" of people involved in the events appear in his memories to assist him in determining his guilt in the affair. The reminiscences are mixed with the real action: the flight of the "Italia", the air rescue operation from Kings Bay airfield, the expedition of the "Krassin" ice-breaker. A sort of human touch is added by the ever beautiful C.C. playing Malmgren's girlfriend.

For those interested in more details about the adventure, I suggest this book: The Polar adventure : the "Italia" tragedy seen at close quarters, by Odd Arnesen.

For Brazilian audience: 

Este filme já existe na plataforma YouTube. Há uma ou algumas sem legendas e uma dublada (Herbert Richers), mas o áudio da dublagem está muito baixo e temos que aumentar muito o nível do som para ouvir razoavelmente e em algumas partes do filme a dublagem desaparece.

Assim, essa versão do meu blog é uma versão legendada, com legendas em Inglês e Português. O protagonista, Peter Finch, está muito bem no papel de Umberto Nobile, mas acho que o ator Maximilian Schell poderia ter sido melhor para o papel , por ele ter o rosto quase idêntico ao de Nobile. Tanto Peter Finch como Hardy Kruger, que faz o piloto que salva Nobile, já haviam feito um filme um tanto parecido, O Vôo do Fênix, 4 anos antes.

Illustrious Corpses (Cadaveri eccellenti) - 1976


Gifted director Francesco Rosi masterfully helms this elegant, compelling and wonderfully stylish paranoid thriller that concerns the valiant investigations of Inspector Rogas(Lino Ventura) as he unearths some dark, unsettling truths in this particularly confounding case. Various high profile judges are being assassinated by a mysterious sniper, are these the crazed retributions of a lone, vengeance-seeking individual with a murderous grudge against these ageing magistrates, or, is this a vile political conspiracy of far-reaching consequence?

Fernando Di Leo was a well-respected director who near-perfected the poliziotteschi genre during the 1970's, taking a genre spear-headed by the likes of Italian film-makers Umberto Lenzi and Carlo


Lizzani and delivering tough-as-nails stories about brutish men in a brutish world. Milano Calibro 9, or simply Caliber 9, is one of Di Leo's most highly-regarded works, kicking off his Milieu trilogy (followed by Manhunt and concluded by The Boss) for which he is now best remembered for. And the film is terrific - inspiring future directors such as John Woo and Quentin Tarantino, Milano Calibro 9 begins with an explosion of violence that serves as a warning of what is to come.
