Storyline

Withdrawn to a remote and desolate Mediterranean island, Giorgio, a comics' illustrator, seeks the precious peace of mind away from the city, trying hopelessly to prolong somehow his escape from an unbearable reality. There, in this idyllic place, Giorgio leads a simple life along with his dog Melampo, fishing, drawing and salvaging whatever the sea washes ashore, devoid of excitement. But soon, this fragile equilibrium will be disrupted when Giorgio, during a long walk on the beach, will encounter the beautiful Liza who has just left her friends after an argument, and under those circumstances, he will offer her food and shelter. Strangely, however, solitary Giorgio still prefers to talk with his beloved companion Melampo, in complete disregard of his new-found friend, Lisa. Is it possible that Liza simply does not belong there? Written by Nick Riganas

Overdone
27 October 1999 | by vince-41See all my reviews

Another Ferreri's fetishistic piece, this time about S&M relationship between man( Mastroanni) and woman (Deneve) which reminds that of Man and dog. Supposedly, the deep insight into the true nature of relationship between men and women. Actually, just like David Cronenberg after him, Ferreri obsessively keeps re-doing same pic over and over.
