One of the first films about the mafia in which the fight is hopeless -- the "polyp's feeler" reaches everything and everybody. A police inspector and a deputy public prosecutor try to prove that the evil architect in the city is in the mafia. Two lawmen play a game of cat and mouse when one suspects the other of being implicated in a murder in this Italian crime drama. Lomunno (Luciano Lorcas, aka Luciano Catenacci) is a notorious underworld kingpin. He, along with several of his bodyguards, is killed by LiPuma (Adolfo Lastretti), who then turns his gun on himself. An investigation reveals that LiPuma was a dangerous mental patient with a grudge against the mobster. District Attorney Traini (Franco Nero) is convinced something's not right He suspects that police detective Captain Buonavilla (Martin Balsam), who for years had been obsessed with taking Dubrosio off the streets, might have been responsible for LiPuma's release from a mental asylum. Buonavilla believes that sometimes justice is more important than strictly following the rules -- and he thinks Traini might have his own hidden agenda. "Confessione di un Commissario di Polizia al Procuratore della Repubblica" (aka "Confessions Of A Police Captain") was one of four Italian features Martin Balsam would star in during the year of 1972.
