Storyline

A girl who, in memory of her father, carries his male name, Giulio (Silvia Dionisio), lives in Venice with her mother ( Esmeralda Ruspoli), a rich, fat, incommensurable woman. As an adolescent, she had a lesbian experience with their housekeeper Lia (Anna Moffo), who also taught her to hate men, to be considered animal-like beings, from which a woman can not be hurt. Over the years she manages to escape that bond morbid and becomes engaged to college student Lorenzo (Maurizio Degli Esposti), who was raised by a beautiful but corrupt governor and was too shy to touch her, but promised fidelity and security. However she wants to try to have a sexual relationship with a man before marriage. Written by lament

Valerii in sombre mood.
1 May 2003 | by CranstonmanSee all my reviews

After his Western triumphs, Valerii stepped out of the shadow of Sergio Leone with this distinctly Bergmanesque sexual melodrama.Dionisio is perfect in the title role and this remains her best film, Valerii turns up along the way too. Just when the film hits a period of auto pilot John Steiner turns up in the final reel for a climax that is quite unforgettable. A bit difficult to trace but well worth the effort.
