Storyline

Silvia is attacked but she escapes her attempted rapists and runs to the road where she is picked up by Claudio. He is an apparent mechanic, though we never see it, who is a photographer in his spare time. He takes her back to his home where she asks if she can hide out in case her attackers seek revenge, as she dispatched one of them with a rock to the head. He has a penchant for beautiful women, sexual perversion, and soda cans. He is also a misogynist who enjoys referring to women as half-wits when he's not coercing them into undesired sadomasochistic sexual relationships or locking them in rooms. Also he is a fond of fecalphilia. Throughout her stay in his home, she begins to fall in love with him, inexplicably. I guess she decides she can share him with the soda cans.

we are disorientated from the start
11 April 2014 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

As difficult to review as it is to view this is one hell of a bizarre movie. Not to be confused with the Warhol movie, this is from Alberto Cavallone and is probably aiming at the same sort of sub art house audience, or as it was in the late 70s. Extreme and confusing, this begins with happy hippy outdoor romance which rapidly becomes a prolonged rape sequence but all shot in such a way as we are disorientated from the start. This dream/nightmare pattern continues as first this first victim then another are sort of taken in by a photographer, of sorts. he has once taken photos of war torn events and seems to have become traumatised by these images which we see in occasional montage in much degraded quality. In a similar way he 'looks after' the women and seeks to similarly degrade them while he skips about taking crazy photos of bent up soft drink cans. When vomit and excrement join the menu we gather things will not end too well.
