one gets the warning that this is a off kilter story
31 May 2007 | by (high'n the SW desert) – See all my reviews

From the strange sepia toned opening; a rally-march for peace, equality, justice for a African country, presented in a news real feel and backed by a slow turn of the century sounding band music, one gets the warning that this is a off kilter story. Not always obvious, each element of the film scores a caustic note and by the end you are aware of the over all tone. This is most likely imparted by the director, Adriano Bolozoni. He also wrote the screenplay. His career was as a writer of many Italian genre classic's such as the spaghetti western "Sonny and Jed" 1972, the giallo "Gently Before She Dies" 1972, scfi "The Humanoid" 1975, and my favorite " The Man with the Icy Eyes" 1971, the only Italian giallo filmed in the land of the spaghetti western- New Mexico. "Walls of Sin" was one of the few he directed.

What it's all about is Marco's return to his well to do family in Italy. He's just finished his four years of higher learning in England. His father "Papa Baroni" is a successful industrialist played to a tee by Peter Lawford, bringing his Cape Cod life style to good use. His sister, several years younger and a rising glamour model, is heavily swayed by fame. She has photos of herself on the walls in her room, some with her nude. Is this the source of the title? She likes to quote her photographers favorite line, "Sin exists, taking pictures of it changes nothing".

The rest of the family is equality living life to the max and all seems to be one big happy household. Should be, could be but Marco got that education abroad and came home with a bit of an idealistic view.

Nice color cinematography, colorful 60's mod decor and this "The Graduate"1967, inspired Italian film moves along at a brisk pace. It even has Simon and Garfunkel sounding songs that go well with the visuals. However, some of the music tracks were off base and I kept expecting a cowboy to ride over a sand dune at any minute with the very spaghetti western music. But you know, peace marches and spaghetti westerns where both products of the 1960's. Plastics!

What does it all mean!
