Sexy but rather dull giallo--don't operate heavy machinery while watching it and look out for glaciers
This is a pretty sexy, but incredibly slow-moving giallo from director Mario Imperioli. The lead actress Antonia Muraglia is positively stunning with a voluptuous, all-natural body, and she spends most of her screen-time in a bikini(or partially naked). The cinematography is beautiful and the music is interesting (although I believe Imperioli also used at least one of these songs in his other giallo "Snapshot of Crime"). The downside of this movie though is it is SLOW. There's a risk that you could be run over a glacier while watching it.
The plot is rather unfocused, but it's the story of a nymphomaniac model (Muraglia) with a somewhat older businessman husband (Silvano Tranquili). Although he is aware of his wife's many, many infidelities, it is unclear for a LONG time whether he is actually jealous of them or turned on (or perhaps both?---it's hard to tell). At any rate, it's a good hour into the movie before any drama actually begins to occur.
The actors are certainly better than in Imperioli's follow-up "Snapshot". Silvano Tranquilini has been great in stuff like "Smile Before Death", and one of the wife's lovers is the ill-fated German actor Peter Lee Lawrence who had some good roles (usually as villains and anti-heroes)in spaghetti westerns and Italian crime thrillers. Imperioli is most well-known for a couple movies he made with 70's Italian sex kitten Gloria Guida, and if SHE had shown up at some point for a lesbian scene with Muraglia I might possibly have been able to stay awake long enough to watch this in one sitting. As it is though, it's not so much a bad movie as it is a completely suspenseless one. I'd compare it to the director's own "Snapshot", the Haydee Politoff-Beba Loncar giallo "Interrabang", or the similarly sexy but dull "Your Hands on my Body". I wouldn't NOT recommend this, but definitely don't watch it while operating heavy machinery. . .
