The Damned Season

Inspector De Luca Episode 3 of 4

June 1945, and WWII has been over for a few months. As a police officer under the former fascist regime, De Luca now reluctantly finds himself on the wrong side of the law. After being involved in a violent incident at a roadblock he goes on the run, but when he tries to re-enter civilian society under a false identity he is recognised by an officer of the partisan police and roped into investigating the murder of a local peasant. Fearing that his cover may be blown at any moment, De Luca pursues the case with the junior officer and investigates the local community, the disappearance of an aristocrat and the possible involvement of British Army officers stationed in the area.

In Italian with English subtitles.
