Storyline

In the World War II, in a small Italian village, Nunziata is an easy woman married with the cuckold tailor Gioacchino. Her teenage daughter Miluzza teases men with her clothes and gets men to lust after her. One day, Nunziata dies while having intercourse with an Italian Corporal at home, and Miluzza finds a job in the factory of the wealthy Don Peppe that rapes her. When Miluzza returns home, she learns that Gioacchino has died in the afternoon. Soon there are rumors that Miluzza had an affair with Don Peppe, but her grandfather protects her. Then Miluzza's village is bombed, her grandpa dies and she moves to another town to live with a friend. When she finds the Italian soldier Pietro wounded in the leg in her house, Miluzza saves his life and helps him to return to his family. Pietro proposes to marry her, but her mother wants to prove that Miluzza is virgin before blessing the marriage of her son. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

I suppose this is well-made, but I couldn't finish the film...
6 March 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The "nymph" in this story is the daughter of a prostitute and while I didn't find this particularly offensive, the whole idea of EVERYONE around the girl touching, talking about and staring at the girl's genitalia certainly did. I have no idea how old this girl actually was (physically, she looked about 13 or 14), but seeing her completely naked was very disconcerting--so much so that I turned off the film midway through it. Now I am sure that many out there might find my attitudes very "bourgeoise" and old fashioned (there's a lot of truth to this), but I also used to be a psychotherapist specializing in working with sexual abuse victims. In light of this, seeing an underage girl being this sexualized just seemed very inappropriate and sick. Now this ISN'T to say that the topic is a problem--just the way it was handled--there is definitely something to be said about a little discretion. My complaints aren't just a slam against director Lina Wertmüller's leftist bent (after all, I loved many of her other films). From what I saw, the film seemed pretty well made, but also excessively crass and disturbing. I just can't recommend it.
