Storyline

This is a story of love and lust shaded with overtones of incest and lesbianism. Livia is a woman trying to regain the affections of her husband Alberto, whose journalism career takes him away for months at a time - on purpose. What she does not know is that he has an undeniable attraction for their daughter Monica. Livia's own sexual eccentricities lead her to hire young women to have sex with Alberto while she listens in hiding. When Monica wants to get into the act too, the real truth about her parentage is revealed. Written by Ørnås

There are much worst...
18 June 2003 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Disagree completely with the comment. This film is based on a novel by Alberto Moravia who was a very famous italian writer whose books has been made into film by various directors including Godard. This can be a bad film for the ones who has seen little and probably interested in action and blockbuster stuff, in that case yes, avoid it like a plague. You'll get bored. But I suggest the vision of this movie to a mature viewer or at least someone who appreciate good cinema.
