Marcello Mastroianni has a rather cushy life to himself in a Morrocan jail. Working in the library,popping in and out as the fancy takes him, and enjoying conjugal visits from his daughter,(yes, its Cavani territory alright) Life becomes complicated when Tom Berenger falls in lust with the girl, much to the distaste of her father.
The brothel scene, early on in the movie probably remains the main talking point, but it is worth sticking with.The film is seedy and sleazy but strangely compulsive.
Cavani nearly pulls it off, but not quite.
