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

It's Ed Wood !
16 September 2000 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Wow! What a movie! It's about... about... who knows? It follows a group of Italians: a school child, a murderous nymphomaniac, an artist who makes collages of beautiful women and medical textbooks, a drunken communist wife-beater, a beautiful young man christ-stud, a butcher who... er... LOVES his meat, and much more. The plot in incoherent. The visuals stunning. The acting... acting?

I've never seen anything like this. But I want to see more. This director is an Italian softcore porn Ed Wood. Amazing.
