Ornella is eternal... and yet...!
24 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie (maybe more so than Le Futur Est Femme) immortalizes the young Ornella Muti as the ultimate dream woman... as far as sultry ravenous brunettes go anyhow!!! Mayhaps because there is no competition here for her (Carole Perle? Nice name but...) unlike in Le Futur... where Ornella is actually loved by co-star Hanna Schygulla... Here the same is true, as her co-star here also loves her and may in fact love her too much... However, unlike Hanna, Gérard Depardieu fights the attraction to the utmost degree... (And THAT is the true reason why this film was banned by the U.S. censors - the way G.D. goes about to finally purge his desires for her is quite... unbelievable to say the least!)

The mature Ornella Muti is now even better in my estimation... But for a wider audience of woman-lovers, this young Venus-like Ornella is the one and only. She was, in the ten years that followed, constantly in the top ten of the most beautiful women in the world... Too bad her acting talent wasn't up to par...

I will respectfully disagree with the other three here -so far- and state my belief that Marco Ferreri is *not* on the same level as Fassbinder or Bunuel. But he and João César Monteiro are certainly "the next two" I'd say!

Note also the presence of one Michel Piccoli in this one - he who despite being ''just a guy'', balding, not all that fit, not that great an actor himself, managed to co-star often with some of the most beautiful leading ladies in Europe - Romy Schneider, Catherine Deneuve (of course - une compatriote...!), Dany Robin (une autre compatriote!), Sabine Azéma (et une autre!), Martine Carol (et encore une autre!), Ornella here... Proof that it is good to be at the right place, at the right time...

And to the eight who find this "not useful" - a review would be useful.

A comment is just a comment.
