I was afraid this film was going to be soap opera fluff with the luscious rich setting but it turned out quite a bit better.
The story line: Beautiful rich mother has affair with her son's best friend a cook. Frankly Edo the cook got the better deal. It ends tragically.
The 30s mansion where this takes place some how doesn't look lived in--it looks like a museum but what a house! and smack in the middle of Milan.
At first I thought Edo had a relationship going on with the son Antonio...that would have made the story even better--but then again maybe not.
Emma the mother is an unforgettable role and the movie is definitely worth watching and you won't forget her. Let the soap opera part of it be pleasant fluff--after all we all like to imagine living such a life in such a house.
Italians are second to none with style--from clothes to cars to the people they are riveting.
