Storyline

The film takes place in a humble Italian Catholic village where everyone is acquainted with each other but no one truly knows about the secret lives that they all live. The entire community is preparing for the annual religious festival. There's the local butcher who covets the town's young teenagers and then goes into the freezer and makes love to hanging beef carcasses. The teenage daughter who has sex with her father and becomes pregnant at her grandfather's funeral. The communist drunkard who beats and rapes his wife. She lives through her dreams and fantasies or she'll go crazy. The Christ-like stranger who does not have a name. The women fantasize about him. The children all adore him but he does not belong to the village. He always seems to be at the right place at the right time. And there's a bizarre artist who clips out pictures of internal organs from medical journals and pastes them on magazine models with a completely insane wife who never speaks. She drinks water from ... Written by lament

AN AMAZING FIND FOR THE 'TRUE' EURO-JUNKIE!
14 December 2003 | by (NEW JERSEY, USA) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to stumble upon this masterful work of pure genius from director 'Alberto Cavallone' and I must say I was in for a visual pleasure ride, the likes of which I was pleasantly surprised. I must admit, the version i saw was the 'italian-uncut-print, and so was able to sit back, and be completely mesmerized by the amount of artistic blasphemy that was presented for my viewing pleasure.Words that come to mind are, twisted,irrelevant,surreal, yet.....normal..to be blunt!......i'm still stumble'in about...muttering to my self...more.....MORE....yes..M....O......R.......E!........JUST DO YOURSELF ONE FAVOR, SEE THIS MOVIE AT ALL COST'S.................and...........heh,heh...exactly! P.s.-IVE ALSO SEEN ANOTHER OF his movies, 'BLUE MOVIE',another one to see..if...you...can.......find it!
