Saw this at HMV and thought "I like Italian movies and love 70's psychedelia" but this movie was terrible. It was made in 1975 and the drugs were pot and the "other stuff" which comes in pill form and makes you trip. Oh and it makes some drug-less dealer woman in a castle want to die if she doesn't have any. It also makes you foam at the mouth and sense bugs all over you. Basically those pills caused every negative thing every to come out of the mouth of your local police scare mongers about every drug that ever existed. The USA was producing realistic depictions of heroin five years before this like Panic in Needle Park and The Trip was showing realistic LSD use in 1967. In 1975 this film shows the mafia supplying LSD to student radicals, a drug they have have always considered below them. There is no money in it and its not addictive. This movie is so detached from reality it is a joke considering the mafia were pumping heroin into Italy by this time. It could have been relevant, instead it was silly. Some of the city backgrounds are nice but the "trippy party" was not trippy and they stole Peter Fonda's Pirate shirt and some music from the Trip but that was apparently all they got from that flick. It may be hard to simulate the experience, and probably even harder since no one involved had clearly ever done any drugs ever in their lives. This was an anti hippie flick but it seems like it may have been marketed to that crowd, although also trying to appeal to middle class Italians who are far enough removed from drugs that someone dying with foam in their mouth a day after an LSD party seemed legit. Terrible movie 3/10. Anyone want to buy a Blu Ray?
