Madeleine, anatomia di un incubo
24 May 2008 | by (Rome, Italy) – See all my reviews

Roberto Mauri ("Eva, la Venere selvaggia") was not a great director and this "Madeleine, Anatomia Di Un Incubo" is not even his most famous movie. This is a rare and obscure film, it has some nice ideas but the director doesn't follow them very fine and so we get a confusing plot. The end of this ambitious movie is quite original and interesting tough, if we think this is from 1974. I recommend to see it only for the surprising end. There is the usual Camille Keaton ("Day of the Woman", "Cosa avete fatto a Solange?"), beautiful woman but mediocre actress.

My vote is 6 on 10.
