A great unknown treasure of cult cinema. this family drama concerns the love of a brother, Giovani, for his sister, Annabella. At first Giovanni tries to reject his feelings but through the efforts of Annabella he soon finds himself in her arms and her in his bed. Unfortunately Annabella is promised to wed Soranzo by her father, and as with all great sagas of love and lust, revenge soon raises its ugly head as the sordid saga heads towards its bloody finale. This fabulous movie, based upon the stage play by John Ford, is directed with an eye for the beautiful, bizarre and tragic by director Giuseppe Patroni Griffi, stunningly photographed by Vitorrio Storaro, beautifully scored by the great Ennio Morricone, and contains ravishing costumes, authentic locations and stunning sets, not to mention muscle bound men, buxom women and Charlotte Rampling looking absolutely gorgeous.
