Storyline

Paolo, a professor in Florence, was abandoned by Sena, his ex-student, with whom he had lived for many years. She did not give him any explanations and all the attempts made by him to see her again proved useless. Finally, when she is about to leave for Paris to study, she asks him to take her back to the station. The two separate between tears with the promise of meeting again in France. So he reaches Versailles to find her, however, he sees her with a young man named Domenico arm in arm. In the grip of a real psychosomatic crisis, an early aging, Paul returns to Florence, where she reaches him. It seems that everything is back in place between the two, who make a long journey in the Mediterranean Sea, even experiencing a shipwreck. During the journey, however, she reveals to him the reason of her leave. Written by lament

Another one for Ornella fans mostly
13 September 2010 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

This is a still rather early movie for Ornella Muti, while she was on a good way to become a more serious actress, continuing soon after this little known movie with international box-office hits such as "Flash Gordon" and "Il bisbetico domato". Tony Musante, usually a better choice for a villain, plays Ornella's lover Paolo in a tragic romance which is dominated by the disagreement whether the couple should have children or not. The movie is well handled by veteran director Enrico Maria Salerno, if you take the opening for example when Sena (Ornella) refuses to talk to Paolo who becomes increasingly desperate.

Yet again, this is just another movie about beautiful people who walk all day long on the beach or visit art exhibitions, contemplating the meaning of life, while they never seem to work for a living. Last not least, I want to mention there is a great part for Mario Scaccia as an eccentric doctor whose enthusiasm makes you believe in anything "the doctor ordered".
