Storyline

Simona is an aerobics teacher who is in love with her husband, Marco. One night, while walking the dog, she is attacked and raped in the atrium of the building where she lives, and she gets an unexpected pleasure. Shocked by her reaction rather than the actual aggression, she decides not to say anything to anyone, including her husband. From that moment, it becomes increasingly difficult for her to control her sexuality. It becomes increasingly difficult to refuse many advances she receives from men. In fact, she ends up provoking and encouraging, perhaps unconsciously, complete strangers.

Fine line
18 February 2016 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

This movie might cross a line for some when it comes to sexual intrusion or maybe even "force". There are scenes in this that are borderline to say the least. There's nothing explicit in it, but men forcing themselves onto a woman. Though the woman has a "hunger" and a need for sexuality in general, it would seem that it crosses this aforementioned line.

Having said that, there's a lot of nudity and the story is somewhat intriguing to watch. A character who's losing control over herself. A marriage that is beyond saving .. or is it? The main actress does a good job and if I understood correctly she got famous playing roles like this (involving nudity and sexual situations). You can still see why she was attracting men and making them lose their mind over her ... which is crucial to this movie in particular of course ...
