We Still Kill the Old Way

After two men are killed on a hunting trip, a lonely professor (Gian Maria Volonté, The Working Class Goes to Heaven), takes it upon himself to investigate what he believes was not a simple honour killing. As his search intensifies, politics and the Church become implicated in a complex conspiracy orchestrated by a powerful criminal organisation. Elio Petri’s We Still Kill the Old Way, based on the novel by Leonardo Sciascia (The Day of the Owl), is a tense paranoid thriller that features Volonté in one of his finest performances and a superb score by Luis Bacalov (Django). Winner of awards for Best Screenplay at the Cannes Film Festival and Best Actor at the Italian Golden Globes, the film is made available on home video for the first time in the UK.

"It's impossible to resist and hard to shake off even long after you step out of his unsettling, expressive world.” - Electricsheep.com 

“This tense, unusual thriller directed by Elio Petri has a nightmare realism that suggests Kafka… Volonté is a powerful actor who draws you inside his character, and the film is marvellously well sustained.” - Pauline Kael
