Confessions of a Police Captain (Italian: Confessione di un commissario di polizia al procuratore della repubblica, also known as Confessions of a Police Commissioner to the District Attorney) is an Italian crime-drama film.

The film won the Golden Prize at the 7th Moscow International Film Festival in 1971[1][2][3] and the Prix lntemational de l'Academie du Cinema at the Étoile de Cristal Awards in 1972.[3][4]


D.A. Traini strives to convict Ferdinando Lomunno of playing a leading role in local organised crime. He learns that Commissioner Bonavia feels he has unfinished business with Lomunno because Lomunno once ordered the assassination of a politician who had been admired by Bonavia. While Traini takes his pride in going by the book, policeman Bonavia lost his confidence in common law and is about to become a vigilante.



Wild East released this on a limited edition R0 NTSC DVD alongside The Summertime Killer in 2010.
