Storyline

Angela, an Italian-American woman, after many years returned to Sicily to attend the funeral of her father. During the ferry trip she meets Salvo, a teenager boy who claims to be hunted by the Mafia, because of a quantity of drugs he stole to some criminals. She decides to give him a ride and the two embark on a journey through Sicily. His amorous attentions are soon obvious, and leads to a fairly obvious ending.

Just for Italian B-movies lovers !
20 July 2005 | by jacodesSee all my reviews

This movie is a quite interesting example of how a simple plot like this one can be enriched by the talent of the two main actors (Greta Scacchi and the kid). It's definitely not among the string of the best Italian movies of the late '80 (let me put clear, it's a B-movie!), but still has some good points like the wonderful Sicilian setting and the "gorgeous" acting of the leading actress Greta Scacchi. I have seen her in many other English and Australian movies, but I think that in this one she's at her top, more beautiful than ever (look for the sex scene in the motel's bedroom with the kid). Personally I think the mob story it's just an excuse for justifying the morbid curiosity of the director over Greta.
