A dire cheapo thriller which relies on confusion for suspense, schoolgirl nymphets for titillation, and Fabio Testi's five o'clock shadow for a sense of adventure. A girl gets murdered, Testi's the flat-footed gumshoe who investigates, convent school inmates are under siege and suspicion, and there's a complicated sideline about a jeans shop. The denouement is just about discernible from the surrounding detail - abortions, arson, art forgeries - but hardly worth waiting for.
