Storyline

While walking in a garden of statues of women, Ester and her friend Adele see two women kissing. Ester then dreams of kissing Adele and later imagines making love to her while she is in the arms of Oscar, her husband. She confesses her passion to Adele and also tells Oscar that she loves another. His jealousy takes over: he assumes it's a man, and he begs Adele to help him discover this rival's identity. Eventually Ester tells him she loves a woman. This makes him even less reasonable: he jumps between bewilderment ("Am I a cuckold?") and violent anger. After he gets drunk and figures out that Adele is the object of Ester's unconsummated desire, he becomes dangerous. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Made me laugh
22 September 2004 | by (Minneapolis, United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie about an Italian husband's reaction to the idea that his wife might love another, and thought that most men that I know would go through the same stages of disbelief, anger, escape through drinking, wild accusations, and despair. I liked the close-ups, especially of the female actors, that wordlessly conveyed their confusion, distress, longing, and torment. This isn't a deep or soul-searching movie; it is simply a look at human behavior that made me laugh. Watch this movie at the beginning of a dating relationship and see how your partner reacts to the ideas of homosexuality, infidelity, and emotional connections. I think it would prove insightful to the thinking and beliefs of one's new partner.
