A very good movie to own,,,,,,
27 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Desideria" Starring Stefania Sandrelli, Lara Wendel, Klaus Löwitsch. Italian language, with no English subtitles is this version I viewed. A heavy set, 15-year-old girl named Desideria (Lara Wendel) is ridiculed by her adoptive mother to the point where she attempts suicide. While recovering in the hospital, Desideria (Lara Wendel) loses weight as well as her love and respect for her mommy. Upon her release Desideria exacts her revenge on those who have hurt her. Lara bares it all in this very rare European cult classic. A must have for fans of Lara Wendel, it will also appeal to fans of Eva Ionesco and David Hamilton style of movies. This was emotional for me because I to was overweight and I think Lara's acting brought these feeling I felt to the surface so the eye could grasp that feeling. I won't mention Lara Wendel is built like a brick out house nor will I mention I think she is beautiful in looks nude or clothed as well as being a fine actress. My humble opinion is one should own this movie if you can find it, I truly hope this movie will do a come back so it will be available for another generation to enjoy, nuff said.
