Psychological Study of Love versus Self-Doubt
2 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

A blind modernistic musician (played by Ignazio Oliva) is befriended by a very attractive girl (played by Anita Caprioli) whose face is unfortunately blemished by a reddish-purple stain, to the extent that many persons avert their eyes when noticing her in public. She often conceals the skin stain by cosmetic makeup cream. This is an unusually valuable psychological study of the ingrained interpersonal mistrust each of these two protagonists brings into their burgeoning love relationship. She is on her guard ("once he would know about my skin defect, he would no longer love me") and he also struggles with a similar intra-psychic hurdle ("most people befriend me only out of a naive curiosity but then they soon reject me, as they become bored with a blind man"). The development of their romantic relationship is punctuated by related frustrations. The leitmotif includes their intense hunger for affection and their related recurrent hope that this relationship could somehow be saved. Although this beautiful and psychologically very complex film is often found only in Italian, it is emotionally very moving even for those who do not comprehend its Italian dialogs. The emotions are somewhat discernible on nonverbal level by facial expression and by other facets of each protagonist's body language. The camera work is often of delightful beauty. The actors and the director (Francesco Fei) have exceptionally well presented the various psychological hurdles associated with blindness and with disfigurement by skin affliction. Persons with artistic inclinations may be very favorably impressed with highly artistic aspects of this film.
