NEBBIE E DELITTI in DVD



Inspector Soneri: Fog and Crimes (2 DVD)

Quattro film-tv, liberamente ispirati ai romanzi di Valerio Varesi, ideatore del Commissario Soneri e ambientati a Ferrara. Ogni film della serie ha al suo centro un'indagine del commissario Soneri, capo della Mobile di Ferrara che, individualista nel lavoro e non solo, opera coadivuato da una esigua squadra di fedelissimi che costituisce un nucleo a parte all'interno della Questura. Le sue indagini hanno come oggetto una serie di delitti di natura molto diversa tra loro, ognuno dei quali nasconde un mistero inequietante, e che portano alla luce i risvolti tragici e amari, sorprendenti o grotteschi, di quel mondo operoso e apparantemente tranquillo della provincial padana, che costituisce una delle zone più ricche ed evolute del nostro Paese. Sulla scia dei grandi detective del passato, letterario e cinematografico, l'irrequieto Soneri non si ferma all'individuazione di un colpevole. E` come se attorno alla figura dell'assassino si addensasse un intreccio di moventi diversi, di corresponsabilità diffuse, come se il delitto fosse il frutto marcio di un ambiente nel quale il tempo ha sediment risentimenti, ingiustizie mai riparate e desideri di vendetta.

Inspector Soneri: Fog and Crimes
Set in Ferrara, deep in the heart of the Po Valley, Inspector Soneri: Fog + Crimes is a gritty series of crime films that originate from the pen of Valerio Varesi. It comes as no surprise to detective fiction fans that Soneri is a little world weary, a little dishevelled, but very indicative of his region. We've been spoilt with the sunshine of Sicily in the Montalbano series, Soneri works in the darker, danker nooks and crannies of Northern Italy.
This DVD set features the first 4 films directed by Riccardo Donna. Expect a level of quality on par with Montalbano in this first class series. Synopses from the Vol 1 films:

Trying to Forget. (Bersaglio, L'Oblio)
An avenger takes on a band of drug pushers, seemingly driven by a thirst for justice. In reality, the man is a crooked former police inspector. Following the avenger's death, Inspector Soneri has the job of discovering what made this respected officer change sides. During the investigation, Soneri finds himself battling with Angela, who is defending one of the suspects. This leads in turn, to a fatal professional embarrassment.

The Mystery Film Club (Il Cineclub del Mistero)
A woman is killed in a movie theatre. Another works her way into Angela's life, convincing her to attend a series of decidedly new age courses. And so Inspector Soneri finds himself facing an all female case, filled with men who are too much in love, girls who have messy pasts, and fellow officers with time-worn secrets. To solve the case, and save Angela's life, Soneri must investigate the darker side of what for him, has always been a mystery: women.

River of Fog (Il Fiume delle Nebbie)
Two elderly brothers die in a mysterious fashion leading Inspector Soneri to sift through the dust of half a century of history. The truth is rooted in atrocities committed against resistance fighters during the Second World War. The avenger, a former resistance fighter named Ghinelli, has let his hate grow through years spent abroad before returning home to settle the score. Inspector Soneri finds the guilty party, but his questions on the meaning of life are left unanswered.

Rooms For Rent (L'affittacamere)
Ghitta, the elderly lady who owns the Tagliavini Pension is murdered without any apparent motive. Inspector Soneri, who met his wife Ada at the pension twenty years ago, remembers Ghitta fondly. But then he discovers that she rented rooms out to prostitutes by the hour, and carried out illegal abortions in the pension. The key to solving the crime may lay in these illicit activities, but the inspector also fears there may be a deeper mystery with ties to his marriage, and his most cherished sentiments.

Inspector Franco Soneri is a grizzled, battle-weary cop in the great detective tradition of Colombo and Kurt Wallander. He’s precise, measured, and rarely seems to actually light that damned cigar! Based in Ferarra in Italy’s North, Soneri is clearly trying to make a fresh start in life, but his focus on work pushes all other priorities aside, including his tenuous relationship with the enchanting Counselor Angela Cornelio. Like another Italian detective we know, he likes to consider his cases at his favourite restaurant. The Volume 2 edition contains 6 feature films all set along the River Po, and all presenting challenging mysteries that Soneri and his team tackle with skill and alacrity.

Using the character adapted from the acclaimed books by Valerio Varesi (English translations on sale in Australia/NZ), these excellent detective stories present a foggy, moody, and at times inscrutable view of Italy.
