Tragic Electra Complex
15 May 2012 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The fifteen year-old Maria "Mimmina" Luiza (Lara Wendel) leaves the boarding school in Genève to stay in the Bechten Hotel nursing her father, the widower writer Guido (Franco Nero), who is paralyzed by rheumatism. Along the days, Guido recovers from his illness and Mimmina has a crush on him and tries to seduce her own father. When her roommate and best friend Therese (Dalila Di Lazzaro), who is eight years older than Mimmina, comes to the hotel to visit Mimmina, she has a love affair with Guido with tragic consequences.

"Un Dramma Borghese" is a theatrical film about incestuous relationship between daughter and father but never vulgar or cheap. Florestano Vancini directs the movie with sensitivity and the tragic Electra Complex has a natural conclusion. This film is only available on VHS in Brazil and has never been released on DVD or Blu-ray. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Mimi, Um Drama Borghese" ("Mimi, a Borguese Drama")
