Malombra review
18 April 2020 | by JoeytheBritSee all my reviews

A young woman obsessed with the story of another young woman who was driven to death by her uncle seeks to avenge her death. Tedious, poorly told melodrama featuring some horribly overwrought emoting from leading lady Lydia Borelli. The rushed, fragmented ending suggests some scenes are missing, but the film would probably be a dud even if they weren't
