Synopsis:
Released within months of Fellini's 'La Dolce Vita' and Antonioni's 'La Notte', Elio Petri's dazzling first feature 'L'Assassino' also stars Marcello Mastroianni, this time as dandyish thirtysomething antiques dealer Alfredo Martelli, arrested on suspicion of murdering his older, far wealthier lover Adalgisa (Micheline Presle). But as the increasingly Kafkaesque police investigation proceeds, it becomes less and less important whether Martelli actually committed the crime as his entire lifestyle is effectively put on trial.
