| Obscure and quite remarkable
This odd and obscure Italian mix of giallo and drama tells the strange story of an old paralyzed writer (Fernando Rey), his younger wife (Olga Bisera) and a young man (John Phillip Law, "Delirio di Sangue") who lives in an apartment the couple rent him. What the young man doesn't know: the writer watches him on a telescope whose lens has been installed in the wall of the apartment. The paralyzed man, who shares a subvert secret with his wife, "needs" to spy on the tenants to find inspiration for his writing work. With this new tenant, however, the writer becomes obsessive and urges his wife to follow him to find out more about his personality. The wife becomes fascinated by the mysterious man too, and - needless to say - this "triangular relationship" won't come to a happy end.

"L'Occhio Dietro la Parete" is a really strange picture. All characters in it obviously have a psychological problem concerning relationships towards the other sex. Everyone has weird or even wicked desires and hides a depraved secret: The young man has an urge to kill, the couple's butler preys on teenage girls, and the couple... well, I won't give that away. The film is very atmospheric, shows quite an amount of nudity without becoming too sexploitative, and boosts a moody soundtrack. Sadly, this obscure oddity remains extremely hard to find. But if one can get hold of it, he shouldn't waste the opportunity and watch it: It's a really remarkable and quite unique film. Rating: 7 out of 10.
