Official announce:
Young and beautiful Silvana (Ornella Muti) has reached an impasse in her life after the
death of her lover. She is approached by a friend of the deceased, Gabriele (Philippe
Noiret), who proposes to keep her in luxury at his manor house, as long as she will keep
him company and listen to his stories of past love affairs. Initially, Silvana is not attracted
to the older man, and only reluctantly, and in stages, accepts his strange offer. What
follows is a very different tale of seduction and awakening for Silvana, as Gabriele’s tales
impress themselves upon her, and even in a way enter her own life. As much of the film
rests on the verbal stories that Gabriele tell Silvana, a real understanding and
appreciation of the film is of course not possible (for me personally) without an English
translation of the dialogue. However, Muti and Noiret are wonderful to watch, and the film
as such looks good (as photographed by Luigi Verga).
