Vera and Arthur come from vastly different backgrounds. They fall in love when their worlds collide. Can they reconcile the differences between their families and backgrounds or will they be pulled apart as they try to unite their lives?
Most likely inspired by the (then) recent success of "9 and 1/2 Weeks", "Intimo" tells the story of a beautiful fashion model / waitress (Eva Grimaldi) who gets sucked into a strange, sadomasochistic relationship with a mysterious man and starts to ignore her loving but "square" boyfriend. Grimaldi is a just about perfect woman, everything about her
from her hair to her calves - exudes sensuality comparable to that
of, say, Sophia Loren. "Intimo" is fairly well made for its genre, however I personally don't like erotic films where women are put in compromising positions without their consent or are attracted to creeps, or where the men are calling the shots all the time. All of the above happen in this film, so if you also have a problem with any of it, you've been warned; if you don't, go ahead and watch it. I won't be throwing my copy away, but I won't be watching it again for a long time, either. (*1/2)
