Storyline

A May-December romance. Roué Giulio Marengo, a Roman landscape architect unhappy in his marriage, meets Francesca, a young and beautiful Florentine, and then learns she might be his daughter. He resolves to keep his hands off but can't seem to stay away, and she's eager for a lover who's a father figure. He's happy to be a kid, so he tries to find out who her father is; his wife knows something is up; his daughter, who's Francesca's age and is pregnant, encourages the affair. Should he tell Francesca his fears that it might be incest? If he tells her and she doesn't care, what next? And what of his wife, who still wants to be married? Francesca takes control.

Odd scene
22 February 2004 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie a few years ago and have forgotten most of it. However, there was a scene that stuck out and has haunted me ever since. The scene where the girl pees in a cup and makes tricks the man into drinking it. She thinks this is really funny and makes him bite her butt. Yeah, that is one of the oddest sex scenes I have ever seen and it's the only thing I remember about this movie.
