The Scent of the Night

1998 - Crime

Despite being a policeman, Remo Guerra is also the head of a group of robbers of the Roman suburbs specializing in the assault of rich people. Totally absorbed by his illegal dimension, Remo manages to develop an effective criminal technique: the gang hooks up the victims on the street, follows them in the car and enters the house. But despite the continuous successes, Remo faces a conscience crisis: should he, the robber of the rich, reveal the contradictions of society?

Based on the novel by the journalist Dido Sacchettoni “The Nights of Clockwork Orange” published in 1986, in turn inspired by facts of the news.

The second unforgettable film by Claudio Caligari, presented out of competition at the Venice Film Festival, THE SCENT OF THE NIGHT marks the return of Claudio Caligari behind the camera after fifteen years since his debut with Amore Tossico.
