Storyline

Stuck in a dysfunctional and suffocating marriage, the middle-aged landscape architect, Giulio, has a chance encounter with the fresh and alluring Florentine student, Francesca. The physical attraction between the two strangers is as fascinating as it is irresistible--Giulio feels how it is to be loved and be young again; Francesca yearns for a meaningful relationship, and to experience the safety of true love. As a result, more and more, Giulio feels the insurmountable need to see the young seductress again and again, despite Francesca's connection to an old flare. Could Giulio, indeed, be Francesca's missing father? Written by Nick Riganas

Odd scene
22 February 2004 | by ethylesterSee all my reviews

I saw this movie a few years ago and have forgotten most of it. However, there was a scene that stuck out and has haunted me ever since. The scene where the girl pees in a cup and makes tricks the man into drinking it. She thinks this is really funny and makes him bite her butt. Yeah, that is one of the oddest sex scenes I have ever seen and it's the only thing I remember about this movie.
