A celebrity criminal in his native Italy, Renato Vallanzasca hit the headlines in the ’70s for his audacious heists and glamorous lifestyle as kingpin of the Milanese underworld.
Following up his 2005 Romanzo Criminale, director Michele Placido provides another lightly fictionalised account of a real-life bad guy.
There are some effective action set-pieces, but the repetitive succession of arrests and jail-breaks – and a lack of any social context – reduce the film’s impact.
It’s saved by a louche, swaggering performance from Kim Rossi Stuart as Renato.
