Overview

Murder, Venice, relationships... It's a delicious concoction in the hands of crime novelist Donna Leon. Venice provides the backdrop for the lush film versions of the bestselling novels, which feature singular Commissario Guido Brunetti, canal boat rides instead of car chases, fine cuisine and crime investigations in one of Europe's most beautiful locations. Joachim Krol stars as Brunetti, a police inspector with a keen mind, razor-sharp wit, and a touch of melancholy. He strives to bring criminals to justice, but experience has taught him that countless things work against that - human frailty, corruption, and police incompetence being chief among them. He takes refuge from the job in the company of his loving wife Paola, a university literature professor, and two teenage children, Raffi and Chiara.

Episode 1: VENDETTA
First it's a high society attorney, then a distinguished tax advisor - both murdered within a few days of each other. The attorney's wife refuses to help Brunetti's investigation, but information comes from a source close to her. The trail leads to Signora Ceroni, who knew both men - and apparently a great deal more. Inspector Brunetti must crack a murderous human-trafficking ring run by the cream of Venetian society.
Episode 2:

THE ANONYMOUS VENETIAN When a corpse in lingerie and red high heels turns out to be a respected and influential bank director, Brunetti suspects blackmail. As he searches for clues in the subcultures of transvestites and male prostitutes, he discovers just how many respectable citizens lead double lives.

    I am a big fan of Donna Leon's novels and when I found out they had been made into TV movies I was excited. The videos bring all the characters to life. The settings are authentic Venice, interiors and exteriors. They are beautifully done. The only reservation is that they are in German with English subtitles. They might have felt more authentic if they were in Italian with English subtitles, but, it is a very minor point. If you enjoy Donna Leon's novels you will enjoy these videos.
