The Voyeur (1994) - Tinto Brass [Amazon.com] [FR] [DE] [UK]


In the 1980s Brass spoke with his friend Alberto Moravia about converting his novel, L’uomo che guarda (The Man Who Watches) into a screenplay. This was originally scheduled to go before the cameras in 1986 or 1987. Moravia, an admirer of Brass’s work, was pleased at the prospect, but the film was delayed and he did not live to see the result.

I won’t hazard a guess as to what he might have thought. This is another Brassian sex-film experiment, and despite its darkness, it’s a significant improvement over the previous few films. The story is unusual, and its in-the-family jealousy is vaguely reminiscent of The Key.

In a nutshell: French-lit professor Edoardo “Dodò” is puzzled by his wife Silvia’s frequent unexplained disappearances, and by her brief and unannounced reappearances. He is even more puzzled by his bedridden father’s success with the ladies. But all that’s nothing compared to his puzzlement at discovering that Sylvia is sneaking into his father’s bedroom at night. And when Sylvia’s confession about what she likes about her secret lover exactly matches his daddy’s secret proclivities, well, he’s just beside himself with confusion. But that doesn’t stop them from making up after Dodò finally moves out of his daddy’s apartment into one of his own—directly above daddy’s. --http://www.geocities.com/busterktn/1994a-uo.html
