Storyline

Lisa, a fifteen-year-old daughter of a wealthy industrialist, falls in love with Robert, a young hippie, slightly older than her. Their feeling is very strong, and the two decide to take a little holiday in Ponza aboard the girl's father's sailboat. During the journey, however, they are forced to land on a deserted island, because of a shipwreck. Meanwhile, the police - alerted by Lisa's parents - is convinced that the girl was kidnapped by a maniac. Written by lament

Mutti but not Nudi
20 November 2012 | by anordallSee all my reviews

On those days, Europeans still believed in the built-in good nature of Man. So, the boy is a healthy, sympathetic guitar player who won't force the little girl into sex unless she is willing to be initiated in this sole reason to exist (the goddess Reason was long gone, after the reason-shattering slaughters of WW1 and WW2, and god Hazard hadn't been put in her place yet). Anyway, only extreme examples as this (the film) will proof such empty theories... Also: much to the contrary of what "sheenafilm" states in his (her)review of Il Sole nella Pele, Ornella Mutti doesn't appear in the nude scene. The credits clearly say that the scene was taken with the sole participation of an over-eighteen model.
