Storyline

After six short months of marriage, the free-spirited and disenchanted housewife, Marta, is already starting to feel the passion wane for her boring literary editor husband, Dario. As a result, against the backdrop of medieval Mantua's renowned literary festival, young Marta will fall for the intriguingly handsome Frenchman, Leon, while admiring Palazzo del Te's vivid murals. Of course, the always-suspicious Dario will soon notice Marta's scandalous affair behind his back--a not-so-shocking discovery that paves the way for a passionate transformation. Perhaps, a dash of infidelity was all that Dario needed to awaken his dormant enthusiasm for the neglected Marta; nevertheless, is his new-found interest too little, too late?

This must be one of the worst movies i've ever seen!
26 June 2007 | by senor_sSee all my reviews

I watched this with my girlfriend. We've never seen a Tinto Brass movie before and just stumbled over this one at the local video store. At the backside of the cover it says "erotic-thriller" by a "cultdirector". And as we like both (erotic and thriller), we decided to give it a try.

It wasn't anything like we expected. My girlfriend hated it because of the awful sex-scenes. There was no erotic, no thriller and no plot at all, just a poor actress committed to an old mans chauvinistic fantasies. Men don't talk in this movie, the only grab the poor actress's ass, pussy or tits, which is followed by sudden sexual intercourse. And women only talk about the size of penises and the need to have sex again. This movie fells like it has been written in 2 hours after watching a porn-movie.

I'm pretty sure this was our first and last Tinto Brass 'cultmovie'-experience.
