THE SCENT OF THE NIGHT is a provocative thriller in which a former policeman turns full-time criminal and goes on a downward spiral in 1990s Rome. Remo (Valerio Mastandrea) is a disgruntled cop who pads his income by raiding rich people’s houses with a group of thugs. Because of his hatred for discipline he is soon dismissed from the force, while continuing his criminal escapades full time…until he gets arrested.
