A beautiful and innocent woman meets a man who is a criminal., 6 June 1999
Author: anonymous from Seoul, Korea

This movie is interesting because the two relationships in this movie go well together-Bambola and Furio,and Bambola's gay brother and Settimio. Bambola and Settimio,both get to know what they want and who they really are by violence (rape). continous violence of Furio blocks Bambola to face the new herself but she does like the fear and confusion. It might be curiosity. And her brother's warm consideration helps Settimio to see the new himself.It is like this movie shows intense passion looks like lust and steady going love looks like normal and standard love. You may think of who you are, either Furio or Bombola's brother watching this movie. and I believe many people have this intense passion in their heart but they just don't show it for many reasons.
