English Summary:

Serpico is a 1973 American neo-noir biographical crime film directed by Sidney Lumet, and starring Al Pacino. Waldo Salt and Norman Wexler wrote the screenplay, adapting Peter Maas's biography of NYPD officer Frank Serpico, who went undercover to expose corruption in the police force. Both Maas's book and the film cover 12 years, 1960 to 1972.

The film and principals were nominated for numerous awards, earning recognition for its score, direction, screenplay, and Pacino's performance. The film was also a commercial success.

Working as a uniformed patrolman, Frank Serpico excels at every assignment. He moves on to plainclothes assignments, where he slowly discovers a hidden world of corruption and graft among his own colleagues. After witnessing cops commit violence, take payoffs, and other forms of police corruption, Serpico decides to expose what he has seen, but is harassed and threatened by his peers. His struggle leads to infighting within the police force, problems in his personal relationships, and his life being threatened. Finally, after being shot in the face during a drug bust on February 3, 1971, he testifies before the Knapp Commission, a government inquiry into NYPD police corruption between 1970 and 1972. After receiving a New York City Police Department Medal of Honor and a disability pension, Serpico resigns from the force and moves to Switzerland.

 

Hungarian Summary:

Al Pacino Oscar-díjra jelölt nagyszerű alakítást nyújt ebben a klasszikus Sidney Lumet filmben, amely valódi események alapján készült.

Frank Serpico a New Yorki rendőrség kötelékében teljesít szolgálatot, de kollégái különcnek tartják. Ellentétben a szokással, ragaszkodik ahhoz, hogy szakállasan szolgálhassa a rendet, és ha fogasra akasztja az egyenruháját, mindenki a bohém Greenwich Village egyik hippi lakójának nézné. Serpico azonban nem csak öltözködésével és stílusával lóg ki a sorból. Ő az egyetlen zsaru a körzetben, aki nem fogad el kenőpénzt az alvilágtól, mi több: a társai korrupcióját jelenti a feletteseinek is.

Mivel a körzet szinte minden rendőre érintett a korrupciós ügyben, a rendőri vezetők nem lépnek fel ellene még Serpicojelentése után sem. A zsaru úgy érzi csak egyetlen lehetősége maradt, hogy képviselje a tisztességet: át kell törnie a hallgatás falát, a nyilvánosság elé kell vinnie az ügyet, vállalva ezzel, hogy a rendőrök szemében örökre megbélyegzetté válik...
