Storyline

Antonio, a rich industrialist, married Laura, a beautiful young woman.

When Claudio leaves, she also leaves. Her husband searches for her, begs her to come back to him. The woman, who finally feels free, refuses. Antonio can not accept the prospect of being alone forever, and decides to kill her. Written by lament

Quotes

Laura: Antonio, I'm still here. I'm still waiting for you to tell me what I should do.
Antonio: You're still asking me?
Laura: Of course I'm asking you. Weren't you the one who decided the lifestyle of this relationship? An empty life, full of superficialities. Those boring parties, full of whisky, cards and small-talk. All of us doing the same things. What we do, we do with forty other people. Never a moment for ourselves. To many people, that's not what a marriage is.

Midlife Crisis
19 August 1998 | by SMK-3See all my reviews

The middle-aged couple Laura and Antonio have a problem, a problem with their sex life: Antonio fails to perform at night and Laura is getting increasingly frustrated. To add insult to frustration Antonio does better when confronted with younger flesh and when his wife finds out she too seeks a younger lover. However, this is more than Antonio's Latin ego can take...

This is a very peculiar kind of film, not the sort of thing you normally find in Anglo-Saxon countries. On the one hand the film is exploitative in the way it depicts the sex, the drama, uses its nude scenes, resolves the tension etc. On the other it takes its subject (sex problems in middle age ) perfectly seriously. The leads come across as believable people: they aren't the "I'm over forty, I should have no sex" bygones of mainstream cinema or the lecherous dirty old men and women of exploitation cinema.
