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

good story of social dilemma of abused girl
19 May 2001 | by (Dallas Texas) – See all my reviews

This movie shows the social dilemma of an abused girl, showing how easily she is victimized, how unaware she is, and how society gives her little chance to escape her role. It does not overplay her role as a victim, and it condemns no individual, only society.
