Simonetta Stefanelli stars as Lucrezia Borgia in Luciano Ercoli's version of the early life of this fascinating historical persona. If the accuracy of the historical facts may be drawn into question, Ercoli certainly cannot be contested in his attempt to bring all the more sensational and lascivious details to the screen. The film is actually very good looking, and Stefanelli is a gorgeous Lucrezia. Simonetta Stefanelli performers as the pitiless Lucrezia Borgia in Luciano Ercoli's take on the Borgia household. During the early 16th century, Italy is governed by the mighty Borgia family, directed by Cesar Borgia and his cousin Lucrezia (Martine Carol). In a ruthless power play, Cesare plots to have his sister's spouse murdered. But lacking her brother's understanding, Lucretia has taken a durable lover who will challenge the Borgias, but Cesar's love for his cousin will once again contribute to the decline of Lucrezia's partner and unite the 2 friends in an incestuous connection.Written by
Simonetta Stefanelli is, in high measure, the basic motif to see this embroidery of eroticism and legends about Borgia family. A film preserving the traits of its period, the mix of naivety and romanticism, provocative scenes and pathetic dialogues, interesting for the air of nostalgy and for the sketches of acting. Massimo Foschi gives a decent - theater -like Cesare Borgia and the good points are from Ettore Manni as Alexander VI and Anna Orso. Naivety is the basic trait. But for nostalgics, for discover (again) Simonetta Stefanelli and for a specific spirit of fake historical films of "70 's, it is a real good option.
