Cast

Crew
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.
