'Tony Arzenta' is a truly absorbing euro-crime from expert genre director Duccio 'Puzzle' Tessari. Not too sure why this cracking yarn doesn't get mentioned in the same bated breath as 'High Crime', 'Violent Professionals', or 'Violent Rome' as it is clearly on par with them, and in some specific area's it actually usurps them. Having the ice-cool, Gallic master of understatement, Alain Delon as your vengeful hit man is a casting godsend, and as our idiosyncratic, enigmatic arbiter of righteous retribution makes it nigh on impossible to take your eyes away from his blazing a balletic trail of brutal revenge deep into the swollen underbelly of the Cosa Nostra. I readily admit that the premise of a hit man wishing to break free from their nefarious clutches is a well-thumbed conceit; but when said coda is interpreted by the likes of Delon/Tessari and propelled by a lively, infectious score from the woefully underrated, Gianni Ferrio, any hint of formula is quashed beneath an electrifying torrent of cinematic savvy.
