Go To

Contraband, originally titled Luca il contrabbandiere ("Luca the Smuggler"), is a 1980 Italian poliziottesco directed by Lucio Fulci and starring Fabio Testi, Marcel Bozzuffi, and Ivana Monti. Fulci's sole poliziotesco picture, the film was funded by actual mobsters after the original producer died suddenly and his widow nearly pulled the plug.

The film is set in Naples, where Luca Di Angelo (Testi) and his brother Michele (Enrico Maisto) use speedboats to smuggle cigarettes, and find themselves between two contraband bosses after they lose a load of cigarettes.

Not to be confused with the 2012 film of the same name starring Mark Wahlberg.
