An intensely erotic Film
22 October 2005 | by gfs2000See all my reviews

Wonderful performances and beautiful cinematography. A romantic film from start to finish. The story line is probably only that of a B movie, but there's something about this film that really appeals. Greta Scacci is an erotic charmer here. This film hasn't gotten the publicity it deserves. Peter Coyote is a bit too intense in his role, but it works, nonetheless. Jamie Lee Curtis is always great. As erotic as the film is, it's also very sad. Keep the tissues nearby; you'll need them.

Last but not least, I love the musical score, and the scenery in Italy is just heaven. There aren't really any credits given for the musical score, but I believe it's some derivative of a classical piece. Would love to know which one. I wish this film were available on DVD. I've watched this film several times on VHS, after seeing its original release in the theater.
