A convict takes up boxing in prison and this brings a new meaning to his life. Once out, his trainer motivates him to become a professional boxer. He cares about only two other things, his uncomfortably close mother and absent father.
Giorgi and Mastroianni play stepdaughter and stepfather who are doing each other because she feels guilty over something in her past and blah blah blah. Berenger pursues her relentlessly (God knows why), eventually wins her over but her stepdaddy seems to have a firm grip on her. Will she choose Berenger or Daddy dearest?
The fact that I stayed to find out is a testament to what a true fan goes through. I'm a huge Berenger fan and while he has definitely made some stinkers, none compare to this dud.
Due to a very sloppy VHS edition the dialogue got through very badly and some scenes very spoken entirely in french without subtitles so I have only a faint idea what went on there.
The film looks incredibly cheap and it's hard to imagine that the same DP here made Dario Argento's incredibly beautiful Suspiria. The film is incredibly slow moving, nothing much happens and it's also very tasteless in many respects.
My advice; Avoid
