Hands Over the City
On the eve of local elections in Naples a residential building collapses, killing some innocent by- standers. The Communist councilman De Vita (Carlo Fermariello) initiates an inquiry on Edoardo Nottola (Rod Steiger), powerful businessman and exponent of the local right wing party. Nottola wants to be elected head of urban planning and personally manage the city development on behalf of his colleagues and his party. Nottola’s party tries to convince him not to run, so he surprises them by joining the Christian Democrats, their political opponents, to obtain office. How will Nottola use his newly appointed power…? In Italian language with English subtitles. (35mm presentation)
