Sergio Martino's 1975 crime drama Silent Action on Blu-ray in March

10 February 2021

Strap yourself in for hard-hitting action this March with Silent Action [La polizia accusa: il servizio segreto uccide], the explosive and provocative crime saga from Sergio Martino, the legendary Italian filmmaker behind giallo classics Torso, The Strange Vice of Mrs Wardh and All the Colours of the Dark.

When high-ranking military officials turn up dead, all from apparent suicides or suspicious accidents, it’s down to Inspector Giorgio Solmi (Luc Merenda, The Violent Professionals) to find out what’s happened to them. Aided by Captain Mario Sperli (Tomas Milian, Almost Human), the two men soon find themselves in the midst of a deadly political scandal that threatens to bring Rome to its knees.

Making its global HD debut, Fractured Visions is proud to present Silent Action (A.K.A The Police Accuse: The Secret Service Kill), a bold and uncompromising take on a startling true story, lovingly restored and featuring a host of new bonus material.
