Directed by Fernando di Leo
Maurice Ronet (Purple Noon) stars as Giuseppe Lagana, a European
playboy who returns to his home in the Sicilian town of Catania to settle
his deceased father’s affairs. He reunites with an old friend, Caterina
(Lisa Gastoni), and a mid-life romance is kindled from the sparks of their
youthful attraction. But Giuseppe finds he is not immune to the sexual
magnetism of Caterina’s teenage daughter, Graziella (Jenny Tamburi).
Soon Giuseppe’s paternal affection evolves into adult passion, and he
and Graziella are engaged in a tempestuous affair, willfully ignoring the
consequences should Caterina discover them. Though best known for
his bloody poliziotteschi, Fernando Di Leo (Shoot First, Die Later) proved
himself just as adept at the erotic thriller, savoring the irresistible charm
of the modern Lolita, while masterfully building tension around a love
affair that, by its very nature, is destined to end tragically.
