L'affaire Crazy Capo (The Crazy Capo Affair) is a 1973 French-Italian crime film directed Patrick Jamain, based on a novel by Gilbert Tanugi.


The film revolves around three characters: Joseph Marchesi, a.k.a Crazy Capo, the oldest leader of a crime organization, Antonio Marchesi, the son of Crazy Capo, and Jean Diserens. Diserens has an ambitious plan to use European youth to transport drugs, but Crazy Capo is standing in his way. Diserens orchestrates an assassination on Crazy Capo with Marchesi as the killer and succeeds. While Diserens carries out his plan now that Crazy Capo is no longer in sight, Commissaire Martin investigates the death of Crazy Capo. Supposedly through a phone call that tells him about Crazy Capo's killer, Martin illegally arrests Diserens and tries to make him confess. Antonio breaks Diserens out of prison, and Diserens quickly realizes that he is facing an unknown threat probably planned by Crazy Capo beforehand.[1]
