Storyline

A young girl marries the wealthy father of one of her male friends at college, but she soon finds herself falling for her new husband's son. The husband finds out about the two, and comes up with what he believes to be a foolproof plan: he will frame his wife and his son for his own murder, then have the pair locked in a room in his remote, isolated estate--with his own dead body.

Rare Thriller is Worth the Search
1 January 2005 | by (Columbus, Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Two Males for Alexa" is a rare Italian-French thriller that deserves to be seen by a wider audience. Directed with much flair by Juan Logar, this film thrives on the excellent performances of the three lead actors: Curd Jurgens as the betrayed husband is incredibly expressive and believable; Rosabla Neri, as the philandering Alexa, delivers her usual thoughtful performance and, in doing so, makes her potentially cardboard cut-out character multi-dimensional, and Juan Luis Galiardo, as Alexa'a heartthrob Pierre, also cares enough about his craft that he avoids the trappings of a potentially stereotypical character and, like Neri, makes him real and full of depth. Also in the cast is Eva Dormane, who very much looks like Spanish actress Emma Cohen, and she, too, is good, given her limited screen time. The film is enhanced by an excellent 70's soundtrack, and the claustrophobic set on which this feature was shot makes the viewer feel as trapped as the on screen characters. Flashback scenes and hallucinatory scenes are also well-used in the film.

The version I saw was dubbed in French with English subtitles and was of excellent visual quality, however this print does suffer from some poor editing and may, in fact, be missing footage. Other prints in existence are in Italian language only.

Anyone with even a passing interest in Italian thrillers of the 1970's will be more than satisfied with "Two Males for Alexa."
