Italian Movie. 1973. Directed by Marco Vicario. Aka The Sensuous Sicilian (USA). Comedy. Actor: Giancarlo Giannini. Barbara Bach as Daughter of Pharmacist.
From his youth,
Paolo Castorini, a Sicilian baron, is as attracted
to women as they to him. Giovanna, a servant girl,
Lillian, a serious girlfriend in Rome, a hostess
at a post-war party, Paolo makes love to them all.
He also feels dissatisfied with a life only of the
body, compared to his journalist friend Vincenzo
and his own father, a sober and serious thinker.
When his father is on his deathbed, Paolo learns
of syphilis in the family and something of the
curse of dissolution. Some years later, he
resolves to marry Katrina, the pure daughter of
the woman he should have married. He wants her
purity to redeem him so he can make something of
his life. But is it too late?
