The Life of a Sick Rapist
13 November 2016 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In Rome, the good-looking Luca (Roberto Zibetti) is a young man that quit the engineering course when his father left his mother (Marisa Paredes) to work in a factory. His best friend is Marcello (Riccardo Rossi) and they are obsessed for women, but Lucas is clumsy in relationships. Luca uses his camera to snoop women on the streets and nearby buildings and makes a sort of diary with his footage. When he sees the gorgeous dentist assistant Valeria (Sophie Broustal), he fantasizes that she loves him. But her unrequited love affects his sick mind and he rapes her on the street. He beats her head on the floor and she faints. Then he calls an ambulance, but Valeria does not recognize him and believes he is her savior; then he courts and dates her. Meanwhile he unsuccessfully tries to rape the seller Sonia (Goya Toledo) on an empty street. Then he meets the jewelry seller Lorena (Isabella Ferrari) and courts her; when she dates him, he rapes her in an isolated spot. Luca takes a taxi to flee and the driver an accident with a motorcycle. When he goes to the police station for statement, Lorena recognizes him but does not confirm to the detective, since she does not believe in the Italian justice. Will Luca be unpunished for his crimes?

"Cronaca di un amore violato" is a film about the life of a sick rapist. Luca seems to be a normal guy but indeed is ill, incapable to have a normal relationship with women. There is a criticism to the justice system in Italy for rape cases, where the victim is exposed and the criminal is submitted to ridiculous penalty. My vote is six.
