Tyrrell also starred in Marco Ferreri's impressive Tales of Ordinary Madness. A scene of which described as follows:

He (Ben Gazzara) meets a middle-aged blonde at the beach (played with incredibly believable mania by Susan Tyrrell in an unforgettable performance) who lures Serking to her apartment for a few bouts of rough sex and rape fantasies before calling the police on him and having him arrested for "carnal violence." --Nick Burton http://www.pifmagazine.com/SID/788/ [Aug 2005]
In another scene from Tales, Ornella Muti sidles up to Gazzara at the bar, full of world-weariness and self-loathing, and in a scene of Bunuelian cruelty, promptly takes a huge safety pin and pushes it straight through both of her cheeks. --Nick Burton http://www.pifmagazine.com/SID/788/ [Aug 2005]
