Interesting tale of a woman and her teenage admirer
12 July 2004 | by bertlipSee all my reviews

I saw the film actually in a Italian Cinema course the writer/director (Vito Zagarrio) was teaching. He showed it and the end of the course due to the curiosity of his students. I took the course at NYU Florence in Italy.

Onto the film, I disagree with the plot summary on the "fairly obvious ending", but judge for yourself. The lead actress is great, the kid opposite her kind of sucks, but the on-location shooting of the film does volumes for it. Not a classic or masterpiece, but interesting to see a "B" Italian movie from the 1980's. Then again, if you have a choice between this one and "La città aperta", go with that one. Also, the soundtrack is unnecessarily cheesy and over-dramatic.
