Arrow Academy is proud to present L Assassino, the debut feature of the late Italian director Elio Petri, a man whose films have often been unjustly overlooked in favour of other more heralded filmmakers. L Assassino tells the story of 30-something antiques dealer Alfredo Martelli (Marcello Mastroianni) who, at the film s outset, finds himself under suspicion for murdering his wealthy older lover. As the investigation presses on, a series of flashbacks gives us an insight into Alfredo s character and the nature of his relationship with his now deceased lover Adalgisa Micheline Presle) With its Kafkaesque mood and distincly political bent, Petri s first film bears many of the hallmarks of his later work. In the director s own words, L Assassino reflected the changes wrought by the early 60s.
