Featuring all 36 of the gripping, compelling and thoroughly enjoyable films based on the bestselling novels of Andrea Camilleri, starring Luca Zingaretti in the title role as the Sicilian detective operating within Italys precarious justice system. Solving crimes in the Sicilian town of Vigata, he must contend not only with scheming and devious criminals, but also corrupt politicians, police bureaucracy, unreliable judges, lethal mafia families, femmes fatales and more, so much more. Thankfully he can turn to fine Italian cooking and his girlfriend Livia for comfort but even these small pleasures are often interrupted in the life and times of Inspector Montalbano.

I was willing to give them the benefit of the doubt following the sudden death of both a major actor and the director and had hoped Luca Zingaretti taking over direction would improve things.
Unfortunately all the things I enjoyed about the series - the light, the scenery, the food, the sense of place and the great cast of Scicilian bit part players - have disappeared. The preponderance of interior shots and rare, weirdly empty exteriors make me suspect that the majority of these episodes were filmed in the Cinecitta studios in Rome rather than on location. This has, I think , also affected the quality of the acting. The main characters look exhausted and turn in unconvincing, stilted performances - so unlike the feeling of camaraderie that they once conveyed. Worse still, the dogs breakfast nature of the production muddles the plotting and fails to convey any feeling of suspense.
I feel this once marvellous series has gone on beyond the point where it should have ceased. I am afraid that these episodes will be the last I buy as what I once loved about the series seems now to be gone.
Season 10 arrived this morning from the fine folks who drive for Amazon's Delivery. In fact the gentleman was about 35 minutes earlier than the tracking stated he would be. 5 stars for that guy. The first thing I did when I got my package of DVD's was go straight to this Monty one. See what the fuss was about. I put the DVD into the machine and randomly skipped to several different sections of both movies. Watched for a minute or so each time. SUBTITLES ARE FINE. Same as always people. So ignore the negative reviews.
I look forward to watching these new episodes of Monty and his posse of lads kicking ass and take down names.
We enjoyed Collection10, if you could call it a collection, as it only has two episodes. They really should have put Collection 9 and 10 together, but then it comes down to economics, the demand for the product and what they can get away with charging for it.
Will they make any more episodes, I do hope so before the actors retire!
Although the series is all in Italian, the setting in the amazing Sicily is at times amazing - all those steps though would cripple me! The subtitles are adequate and allow the story to unfold quite well - although if you can speak Italian I am sure the series would go up even further.
Characterwise, you love Montalbano, get annoyed and frustrated by Mimi, wonder why they employed Catarella (although without him it would lose something big) and will enjoy the food and drink that they all seem to love - apart from Fatsio who seems to live on fresh air.
Any way, all the Montalbano series are worth getting as I am sure you will want to watch them again and again.
