The mafia has overrun a section of the country so ruinously that a very stern man has been sent by the government to be the governor in that region. He has been given wide-ranging power and authority and is not afraid to use it.
What could I say about this Italian movie? It's a very depressing, intriguing but interesting picture about the downfall of a woman in search of herself. Her experiments with men, drugs and claustrophobic situations. The directing is innovative for this cruel and bitter story, devastating for the audience as well for the lead character.
Pasquale Suuieteri made other movies about mafia, real mafia, and underworld politic trash. This film is not in the same mood but worth too.
Some great actors appear in this feature.
I repeat, a very interesting movie, and also very rare.
