Sonia not only decided coldly to annihilate him, but soon manifests all her own wickedness. From her secret diary, Luigi discovers strange confessions; then he finds with horror the body of Francesca (tortured); he learns that his beautiful cousin has murdered her parents. Despite the passion and the sex that make him a prisoner, that the lover is... Written by lament

Mainstream nonsense from past.
30 September 2018 | by alexferdman-98602See all my reviews

Sure as all mainstream its done properly by status quo ideas. So, why the heck I gave it one star? Because its all fake and misleading. Life in Ivory Tower none of my business. Spoiled brats behave as ruling class always behave--without consideration for common law. Yeah, yeah, things moving smoothly, characters developing etc--but this illusion of reality didn't manage engage me. The more things change the more they stay the same--too bad.
