Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Elisabetta Lodoli made her feature directorial debut with this Italian drama, reminiscent of Michelangelo Antonioni's La Notte (1960). Successful biologist Elena (Luisa Passello) has a serious eating disorder. Elena and her husband Enrico (Emilio Bonucci), with their marriage collapsing, are staying at her late father's seaside villa when stewardess Ida (Iaia Forte), Elena's cousin, drops in for an extended visit. Despite their rivalry, Ida's unexpected visit could lead to a solution for Elena's eating problem. Shown at 1997 film festivals (Venice, Vancouver).
