Just for Italian B-movies lovers !
20 July 2005 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This movie is a quite interesting example of how a simple plot like this one can be enriched by the talent of the two main actors (Greta Scacchi and the kid). It's definitely not among the string of the best Italian movies of the late '80 (let me put clear, it's a B-movie!), but still has some good points like the wonderful Sicilian setting and the "gorgeous" acting of the leading actress Greta Scacchi. I have seen her in many other English and Australian movies, but I think that in this one she's at her top, more beautiful than ever (look for the sex scene in the motel's bedroom with the kid). Personally I think the mob story it's just an excuse for justifying the morbid curiosity of the director over Greta.
