Inspector Nardone

Set in the Postwar Milano

A grey but optimistic postwar Milan is the ideal breeding ground for a new criminal scene, very different from the one we are used to today: an old fashioned organized crime, made up of thieves and outlaws who share a specific moral code, which absolutely condemns homicide. A new chief officer is assigned to the Milan Police Department, as if to settle a score for having exposed his corrupt colleagues. This is just one of the various difficulties that Mario Nardone, an authentic Neapolitan, must face in milan. A city which, nevertheless, Nardone love unconditionally and where he plans to bring up his beloved, albeit somewhat neglected, children. Based on a real figure, Mario Nardone could easily be a character from a Simenon novel. Ironic, sstraightforward, persistengly sstubborn but endowed with a strong moral code and a agreat sens of humanity, he deeply loves his family (who tolerate him only because thier paths rarely cross), good cuisine and never misses the chance of a good joke, Mario Nardone was a true legend in Milan during the 50s and 60s.

Mario Nardone was a living legend in Milan in the 1950s and 60s. Based on the real-life historical figure who has been likened to an Italian Eliot Ness, Inspector Nardone arrives in Milan shortly after the Second World War, on a forced transfer from Parma where his no-nonsense temperament and innate sense of justice had gotten him into hot water with his superiors. Nardone is ironic, straightforward, persistently stubborn but endowed with a strong moral code and a great sense of humanity as he sets out to form a special squad to fight crime in the industrial capital of a prostrate Italy still under the effects of the war, and now torn asunder by political and economic contradictions. 2011. Starring Sergio Assisi, Giorgia Surina, Stefano Dionisi. In Italian with English subtitles.
