Directed by Franco Prosperi


In this frame by frame digitally restored very rare entry into the poliziotteschi genre, a robbery goes terribly wrong for a hapless criminal Massimo (Ray Lovelock) when he tries to break into a jewelry store only to have the steel shutters immediately slam down and lock him inside until the police arrive. Naturally, he is sent straight to jail but It doesn't take long before he befriends a big time crime boss inside, but the plot thickens when it transpires that the young man is actually not who we think he is. the two execute a successful escape and we soon find out that we don't really know the true background of these criminals or what is really motivating them. franco Prosperi (Last House on the Beach) directs this revenge themed crime film with Ray Lovelock and Elke Sommer. With its clever plot twists, fist fights, motorcycle and car chases, Meet Him and Die is an entertaining police action thriller.

Reviews

"From Italian director Franco Prosperi comes an entertaining crime flick for fans of European hardboiled cinema of the seventies with a truly remarkable motorcycle chasing a lorry- scene which includes either real crash footage or the most convincing effects I've ever seen." - DVDTALK
