Controversial as the first major film in recent memory to feature a well-known, mainstream actress performing an unsimulated sex act on screen. Maruschka Detmers later expressed some regret at the scene because she said it overshadowed her other accomplishments. See more »
Well-worth seeing! Marco Bellocchio succeeds in analysing the rot and opportunism affecting a typical bourgeois family in the late 80s. Long gone is the optimism of the revolutionary 60s and 70s. But underneath all the muck there still is enough life and spontaneity there waiting to break through not only sexually but hopefully politically too. A very authentic, not at all dogmatic film, one which succeeds in showing the erotic side of love without falling into the trap of cheapness or boredom.
