Aging wife desperately wants to sexually satisfy her husband, but he's losing interest and cheats. She seeks advice even from prostitutes but nothing helps. Tired from trying, she falls for her husband's son who reciprocates.
Alfredo Rizzo was an Italian actor who appeared in some 100 films though nothing of any particular note and he also made a handful of films as Director of which this is one. Another of his films as Director was The Bloodsucker Leads the Dance, about which I recall noting that there was no bloodsucker and no dance. This is equally vacuous. true this time the title, Naked and Lustful is borne out by much fleshy action but just what the heck is it supposed to be? It occurred to me halfway through after some cringe making remarks by some old guy on a boat that this might be intended as a comedy. In the end, I think black comedy might have been the intention with lots of sexy action and of course, as in the aforementioned film, lots of shots of the castle. But Mr Rizzo seems not to know what makes a film work and creating an interest in the characters or the action way beyond him. By the end there is something almost likable and we have certainly been exposed to plenty of nakedness, but a good film, I don't think so.
