Teenage girl Charlotte
falls in love with Carlo, a man who works in live sex shows. He is secretly
having an affair with her swinging stepmother. The plot turns surprisingly
downbeat when Charlotte discovers that boyfriend Carlo can't perform sexually
unless he has an audience.
This was an early,
starring role for Lilli Carati (born Ileana Caravati in 1956), followed
immediately by the equally controversial movie TO
BE TWENTY with Gloria Guida. Afterwards, Lilli's life took a downward
turn from heroin addiction. In 1981, she suffered an overdose, passing
out during an interview on the Italian Broadcasting network. Later that
year, she had a car accident, causing fractures to her patella and shoulder.
Miss Carati took a three year work hiatus, returning in a series of films
(for Joe D'Amato) including THE
LOOK OF DESIRE, and THE
PLEASURE. In the late '80s, she briefly turned to Hardcore (XXX)
before retiring in 1990. Lilli Carati died from brain cancer at age 58
in October 2014.
Through the '70s,
Claudio Giorgi starred in a handful of Italian movies (including STRANGE
BLACKMAIL OF A GOOD GIRL, RETURN
OF SHANGHAI JOE and WATCH
OUT! COLLEGE GIRLS ARE COMING). His bigger success was in scriptwriting
and directing. In 1980, he directed ENTRAPPED
COUNTRY WOMEN, Serena Grandi's debut. Claudio is probably best
known for writing, acting in and co-directing (with Bitto Albertini) YELLOW
EMANUELLE in 1977. Mr Giorgi retired from the entertainment field
after that film at age 31. Today he is in the restaurant business in Rome.
