A happily married 24-year-old woman who experiences an inexplicable, rather restless craving to finally live her life intensely, retells her extra-marital escapades to her husband intending to spice up their marriage.
March 1945 Asolo, Italy. Livia Mazzion, the attractive wife of a top ministry official, slips into the car of lawyer Ugo Oggiano, Livia's admirer and her husband's informer. Livia must reach Venice and her lover Helmut Schultz, a Wermacht lieutenant, as beautiful and accursed as a pagan god, with whom she is having a burning love affair. During the trip she relives the high points of her devastating sexual abandonment gone adrift, one that has shattered her life and her destiny, swallowing her up in the ruinous vortex of a sybaritic and bituminous Venice. The city, in the throes of the final months of the war, is rife with traffickers, officials, nabobs, military brass, sharks and adventurers of every kind. Yet a surprise awaits Livia upon her arrival in Venice, a surprise in which the heroes' own personal defeats interweave with those public, as historical and political events now seek to settle accounts.Written by

In the beach hut scene the woman who takes her clothes off in front of Helmut and encourages him to follow her into the sea is a poorly chosen body double, with over-large breasts and neat sparse pubic hair, whereas the woman in the underwater scenes appears to be the real Livia with luxuriant pubic hair, neater breasts and a different pattern of moles on her left side.

My head felt light and free sounds and colours were magnified... everything came into my brain without filters or obstacles... everything seemed imaginary and real at the same time. I didn't care about anything. I would have done anything to please Helmut... I was his woman. he was my man. Elsa was just a dildo for our passion. My conscience dissolved into pleasure.

Important for definition of this movie is its special flavor. Memories of another films and the taste of a lost age. Symbols of a nostalgic ambiguity and the forms of chimeric images.
It is not a good film. It is not a bad or boring movie. Anatomy of a relation between a Bovaric lady and a gorgeous young officer, story of love and revenge, escape and cruel punishment, "Senso '45" is a delicate cinematographic puzzle .
At first view is a film of "70. Same atmosphere, same acting and gestures.
The androgynous Gabriel Garko is new Helmuth Berger and the drops of Visconti's art are omnipresent. A game, without any mystery but nice for the images of a splendid youth- that is the recipe of this film. Old ingredients and same cook. But the charm is not result of convention or reaction of politeness. To see this film is contemplation of frozen time. A not original film, monument of clichés, scene for all important influences of century, beautiful lie and shadow of a evening. A common sign of a lost hour.
