Inspector De Luca
The Italian Job
If Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan's The Trip To Italy hasn't satisfied your craving for all things Italian, then this stylish detective drama may.
However, the title is a bit misleading given the latest turn of events.
The last of the current series takes place in April 1948, and De Luca, having been demoted to deputy inspector is assigned to the Vice Squad.
He returns to Bologna, and as the first elections of the newly formed Italian Republic are about to take place, a man is discovered dead in a brothel.
The authorities pronounce the demise as a suicide, but De Luca thinks there's more to the case than meets the eye. His resolve to find the truth soon leads to trouble with his bosses.
Alessandro Preziosi heads the cast in a drama which at times looks like Foyle's War directed by Bernardo Bertolucci.
A treat for the eyes and brain.
