Seven Little Killers

Teenagers in an Italian village are questioned by police about the death of a local vagrant, last seen in a field where the kids like to hang out; thirty years later a new police chief, reviewing the old case file, makes a discovery that prompts him to reopen the case and subpoena the now-grown witnesses. Screenwriters Lucio Gaudino and Giovanna Guidoni alternate between the present, as the middle-aged suspects wrestle with each other, and the past, as the truth is gradually revealed, though the story lacks any suspense or even tension. By the time the writers got around to revealing how the vagrant died, I was too bored to care. Matteo Andreolli directed. In Italian with subtitles.
