Fog and Crimes
Broadcast in: Italian
Inspired by the best-selling crime novels by Valerio Varesi, Fog and Crimes features Chief of Police Franco Soneri, a man who's not satisfied at simply identifying a culprit. As he and his team solve each case, they discover disturbing mysteries connected to the long shadow cast by WW II and the bitter conflict between the Fascists and the Partisans. Looking beneath the apparently calm and affluent world of the Ferrar countryside, Soneri seeks to understand the social context behind the crimes. The other main character in the series is the Po River, which dominates the region with its strength, beauty, mystery and power. It controls the landscape and the people who live there, and it always has. Directed by Riccardo Donna, 2003, color. In Italian with English subtitles.
