For 20 years many visitors have come to the villa on an Italian hilltop owned by an English artist. Lucy, a 19-year-old American, was last there four years ago and wants to meet up again with the young Italian who kissed her and corresponded for a while. And she has brought the diary of her late mother filled with enigmatic poems that suggest Lucy was conceived on that hilltop. Lucy wants to find out if Daddy is the Italian war correspondent who wrote to her mother for 20 years. Then again Daddy could be the dying English playwright in residence or the artist who uses a chainsaw on tree trunks for his sculptures. The three, of course, have no idea that Lucy is there to solve a mystery. They, the artist's wife, daughter of that wife and the daughter's American lover are most intrigued by Lucy's virginity.Written by

A film that will not appeal to everybody.....
.......but those that are able to look beyond the basic plotline will appreciate this movie for the masterpiece that it is. This movie is not simply about a 19 year old American virgin who travels to the luscious rolling hills of Tuscany in a bid to discover her true father or to identify out who she truly is, exploring her sexuality along the way. No, it is much more. To say what would take too long. However those who view this film, will come away, as I did after viewing it, wanting to take a meaningful trip to indulge in self exploration.
