I've been watching and reviewing quite a few Shameless releases recently, the good, the bad and the ugly and 'What Have They Done...' falls firmly into the good category.
The body of a schoolgirl is found strung up in an attic and this leads to a police investigation uncovering prostitution, corruption, murder, secrets, lies and deception.
It's a cracking slice of giallo cinema with an awesome chase scene involving the cops and a cleaver wielding motorcyclist, a great soundtrack by Stelvio Cipriani and quality central performances from Giovanna Ralli and Claudio Cassinelli as the D.A. and Inspector respectively.
Of course, the storyline might not be everyones cup of tea but the cover has a dude with a meat cleaver and a schoolgirl pulling her panties up and it kind of does what it says on the tin if you know what I mean.

After a teenage school girl is found murdered, a police inspector (Claudio Cassinelli) becomes determined to find who is responsible but what he finds is something far worse than he could have ever imagined, a group of young girls been forced into prostitution by a assembly of rich and highly influential businessmen.

After reading the reviews for this film I was determined to watch this and have my own say. In my opinion this is a great entry into the Giallo genre. What I found different with this Giallo is that the killer isn't someone who we have seen earlier in the film, his character doesn't have the hidden identity we are eager to discover but it is the identity of those behind the prostitution ring we what to uncover.

The film features as usual alot of violent killings all been carried out by the tradition man in black, but I found this particular killer alot more threatening than the usual killer as he is shown on screen in every murder and not the usual over used hand held POV shot which I can find makes films alot more cheesy when they are used to much.

The acting seems nothing special but I think thats down to the terrible dumbing but I was impressed by the performance from Giovanna Ralli as the District Attorney Vittoria Stori who helps Inspector Silvestri (Claudio Cassinelli) solve the case. I also liked the fact that there was no sexual relationship between the two as it becomes rather boring after seeing it in almost every Giallo ive ever seen. Theres a great score by Stelvio Cipriani and one of the themes used over some of the more tense conversation scenes is one of my favourite pieces of music ever used in a Giallo.

Overall this is top rate film/DVD that I would Recommend people buy.

I'd heard alot about this film and having just watched the superb Shameless presentation I can say I was very impressed. Director Massimo Dallamano is no hack (unlike Aristide Massacessi or even Lucio Fulci who's "New York Ripper" remains a career embaressment for example) Dellamano has crafted an outstanding police - slash - giallo film here. Impressive performances by all, even allowing for the dubbing process this works better than normal. Many genuinely tense edge of the seat moments with a few surprises along the way. As often is the case the music in these Italian genre pictures is worth mentioning on it's own merits - with this Stelvio Cipriani theme being wonderfully haunting.

Dellamano also deserves kudos for the outstanding "VENUS IN FURS" also beautifully presented by this same video label.

As mentioned above, the transfer is excellent with nice colour, contrast and framing. Shame less have done themselves proud here - more so than in their appalling transfer from decidedly dodgy elements of "Oasis of Fear" - a good film marred by unwatchable transfer 'lines' and imagery.

I highly recommend "WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO YOUR DAUGHTERS" as an altogether satisfying, well written thriller not without it's moments of jaw dropping gore.

What Have They Done to Your Daughters? (or, in its original Italian, La Polizia Chiede Aiuto) sees writer/director Massimo Dallamano hopping across genres, trading the amateur detective work of the giallo for the procedural structure of the polizia. For a while almost as popular as the giallo in Italy, this curious offshoot of the thriller genre frequently delved into the seedy underbelly of metropolitan Rome. Dallamano's offering is among the most sordid of the lot, covering teenage prostitution, rape, political corruption and the loss of innocence. The film deals with a teenage suicide which eventually uncovers a child prostitution ring which as usual, includes not just the petty sleazy oddballs (here personified by Franco Fabrizi) but also high-profile professionals (a celebrated doctor) and high-ranking government officials (a Minister). The cast is surprisingly good for this type of genre effort: Claudio Cassinelli (as the investigating Police Chief), Giovanna Ralli (unusually cast as a female D.A.), Mario Adorf as the policeman who finds the first body and also discovers that his own teenage daughter was once a "victim", the afore-mentioned Fabrizi and Hollywood veteran Farley Granger in a smallish role as the first victim's father. The film also features an exciting chase scene, which takes place across the streets of Italy with the meat cleaver welding psychopath in pursuit, one of the great highlights of this film. As usual for Italian genre movies, the music score is an asset and here it is provided by Stelvio Cipriani whose motif was very effective and memorable. This is a very suspenseful and tough-minded Thriller keeps the suspense going from the beginning to the end.Read more ›
