This episode sees a Swedish film company producing an historical drama in Vigata. Upset is caused when Mimi is accused of having a romantic boat ride with the leading lady, who is also the director's girlfriend. He protests his innocence. This isn't Mimi's only problem; his son has been beaten up at school after trying to protect another boy from bullies... a situation which escalates in an unexpected way. Meanwhile a local comes to Montalbano with a strange mystery; while sorting his late father's Super-8 films he finds a series of odd films... each is filmed exactly a year apart and shows only a wall.

This episode was slightly different from what we have come to expect; the mystery doesn't involve a recent murder. That doesn't stop it being a lot of fun though. Most of the laughs come from Mimi's problems following his boat trip... especially after his wife finds out and when Salvo tries to cover for him with the film makers. Events at the school attended by Mimi's son provide a good tense scene with masked gunmen from 'Nameless' clearly based on 'Anonymous'. It isn't all laughs though; the mystery of the films of the wall lead to a poignant explanation. The cast is on good form; Cesare Bocci stands out as Mimi takes a somewhat larger role than usual. Overall another fun episode that fans of the series are sure to enjoy.

These comments are based on watching the episode in Italian with English subtitles.
