Inspector Montalbano is that rare beast, a TV series that actually improves incrementally each time new films are produced. At this stage, the producers have more or less caught up with the novels that Andrea Camilleri had written, so it seemed there would be a break for Montalbano. But lo and behold, someone had the idea to travel backwards, to look at the stories written by Camilleri that pre-date the Inspector Montalbano series we know and love.
The results are here for all to see and enjoy in YOUNG MONTALBANO, the first set of six feature films created by Palomar/RAI, and starring Michele Riondino. All of the films are based on books by Andrea Camilleri, and are directed by Gianluca Maria Taverelli.
