Dir. Francesco Rosi

One of Italian director Francesco Rosi’s finest works, The Mattei Affair was key to the development of Rosi’s style of ‘investigative thriller'. The film tells the story of Enrico Mattei, an influential Italian businessman who made powerful enemies in the world of organised crime and died under mysterious circumstances. An innovative fusion of documentary and fiction, Rosi intersperses Mattei’s story with footage of his own attempt to find out what happened to his friend, the journalist Mauro De Mauro, who disappeared whilst undertaking research for the film.

Part of the retrospective States of Danger and Deceit: European Thrillers in the 1970s (presented by HOME / supported by the BFI).
