Sedotta e abbandonata

Pietro Germi Italia, 1964

dionysus67's rating of the film Seduced and Abandoned

Frenzied comedy and caustic satire of Sicilian mores and codes of honor, it features ample hilarious moments in the footsteps of "Divorce". Sandrelli is often sufficient to dominate the screen but the noisy and cacophonous intrusions of caricatured Sicilians makes the farcical dimension work, at other points though it stretches it to repetition. With elegant camerawork it is generally very enjoyable and fun to watch.
