Seduced and Abandoned

Sedotta e abbandonata

Directed by Pietro Germi
Italy, France, 1964
Comedy, Drama


Shotgun weddings, kidnapping, attempted murder, emergency dental work—the things Don Vincenzo will do to restore his family’s honor! Pietro Germi’s Seduced and Abandoned was the follow-up to his sensation Divorce Italian Style, and in many ways it’s even more audacious.

Critics reviews

By the end of the movie, there is so much general misery throughout the Sicilian’s family that the very idea of comedy seems to be an anomaly. Perhaps, as far as the film’s point is concerned, this method makes good sense; but one cannot really accept the finale without being disconcerted by the comic scenes that preceded it.
