Interesting blackly comic addition to the giallo genre
21 August 2010 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

A middle-aged, hen-pecked husband (George Ardisson) repeatedly fantasizes about killing his wife. Then he finally does kill his wife. He manages to dispose of the body and cover up the crime except for a very incriminating suitcase that accidentally ends up in the hands of an innocent young woman (Orchidea de Santis), which he has to get back.

This is a rather odd Italian giallo from director Alfonso Brescia, who is generally regarded as a hack much more famous for getting his female cast naked than for making well-made movies. Brescia also did the descriptively titled giallo "Ragazza Tutta Nuda Assassinata nel Parco" (i.e. "Totally Nude Girl Killed in the Park"), the dumb but entertaining crime thriller "Knell, the Bloody Avenger", the goofball, niece-lust sex comedy "L"adolescente", and the virtually unwatchable "Beast in Space" that attempted to combine the Eurotica classic "The Beast" with "Star Wars" (now there's a great combo!). This movie, however (made before all of those) is reasonably well-filmed, especially the colorful OTT fantasy sequences. I couldn't really tell since it's currently only available in Italian, but the movie also seems to have a lot of (intentional) black humor, kind of like "I Wonder Whose Killing Her Now?", which is generally quite atypical of the giallo genre.

Ardisson is good as a kind of homicidal Walter Mitty turned actual murderer. Francoise Provost is also good in a smaller role as his shrewish wife. Heterosexual men everywhere will no doubt regret that Brescia does not find an excuse to undress the voluptuous Orchidea DeSantis in his typical fashion (and in HER typical fashion),but she is still quite appealing as a naive beauty. The only downside of this really is its unavailabilty in English. It's the only giallo I have (of nearly 200 now) that is still only in Italian with no subtitles. I hope this is soon corrected because this certainly makes for an interesting addition to the giallo genre.
