5.0 out of 5 stars underrated psychological ghost story w/ dark humor 24 Oct 2009
By nighthead fire - Published on
This is a great, underrated, atmospheric, at times creepy, at times funny tale of an unstable, uncompromising, brilliant painter (Franco Nero) who is emotionally still in an adolescent boy phase. He is with a controlling, manipulative lover who is also his manager/agent (Vanessa Redgrave - these guys were a real life item at time - and got back w/ each other in early 90s and still together today). Director Petri (who also did THE 10TH VICTIM and INVESTIGATION OF A CITIZEN ABOVE SUSPICION) balances the elements to create a really unique film that is part ghost story, part psycho-drama about someone losing their mind and part tragi-comedy/satire on gender roles, art [...], etc,. Highly recommended With one of my favorite (though atypical) Morricone scores.
5.0 out of 5 stars Good movie with surreal imagery and feelings throughout 10 Nov 2010
By GreatMovieCriticForever - Published on
"A quite place in the country", a pretty deceptive title (purposely so). This is a great movie by Elio Petri that uses surreal imagery, feelings, and thoughts to tell its story. In the case, it's an eccentric painter's journey into madness or joy (you be the judge).

Great international actor Franco Nero is at his best portraying a man with two halves one half is in reality, the other is in fantasy. Vanessa Redgrave who is magnificently beautiful in this movie is his mistress who at times also plays games on him and makes his ever inducing madness all the more big.

There's also a side story dealing with the supernatural, and a young girl who was killed.

This is very entertaining and intense film that doesn't pull any punches. Very much recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Big Cinematic Disappointment 9 Mar 2001
By Jay Fenton - Published on
Verified Purchase
A mad artist can't separate fantasy from reality and takes us on a 106 minute, sleep-inducing journey through his own illusions, which include a vision of a girl who died twenty years ago in an Italian villa. Cinematic chloroform from what should have been a fascinating film. Had the music not been so frightfully avant-garde, I might have enjoyed this a little more. I got the point that the music reflected his inner turmoil, but it was just a bit too noisy and chaotic for me. Also, his imitation of a three year old who can't keep the same train of though for more than five minutes de-railed my interest in the story. Vanessa Redgrave, especially, and the rest of the cast give fine performances, but the movie just didn't work for me. This film was a real disappointment and I kept thinking what Mario Bava could have done with material like this!
