better than Venice
This story is set in Ivrea, where the "Carnival" is all about rival groups fighting each other with oranges. A former resident who has come to "help out" his friends meets a woman and their mutual attraction draws them into a passionate affair. We begin to wish that their love will last beyond their stay but of course it all depends on what they decide ... Stefania Sandrelli is not the usual Bardot look alike: she is generously proportioned and unafraid to show feelings as well as her body. Her film partner shows his desperation and confusion as he tries to understand what they feel for each other. I don't know if there is an English version of the film, but the dialogue is worth listening to and thinking about: anyone watching it just for some nudity will miss a lot. Altogether a film which deserves a lot more attention than it has received.
