Eva Renzi is pursued for information whose location she doesn't have
12 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Taste of Excitement" is a modest but respectable spy thriller, done in glorious color with very nice Riviera locations.

It's fair to say that Eva Renzi capably carries this movie, projecting a combination of cleanliness, beauty, girlishness, innocence and sex appeal.

The logic of the story leaves quite a lot to be desired. Suffice to say that there is a Macguffin, which in this case is a document that reveals the identity of certain parties that are secretly shipping forbidden goods behind the Iron Curtain. Renzi is being pursued for this knowledge, but she has no connection to the company and no knowledge of where this information resides. Her frustration and bewilderment are quite fetching. She is in grave danger at a number of points. An artist, David Buck, gets involved as her protector and then lover. Good thing, too. Also on hand as a cop is Peter Vaughan.

The scenery and Ms. Renzi make this movie, but it does have a fair quotient of action and suspense. The climactic scenes are well done in and around a beautiful villa with lush grounds.
