Controversial Italian drama (Original title: Il diavolo in corpo) released in 1986, starring the gorgous Maruschka Detmers (Hanna's War) and directed by Marco Bellocchio. The film is an adaptation of Raymond Radiguet's novel Le Diable au corps, and also stars Federico Pitzalis as Andrea, a high school student who becomes infatuated with Giulia (Detmers), an older woman he sees outside his classroom window. Giulia has a boyfriend who is in jail as a political terrorist, yet despite this, a sexual relationship soon develops between them of such intensity that it threatens to destroy them both. * N.b; The film gained in notoriety at the time of it's release because it includes an extended (though darkly lit) explicit sex scene.

The picture of the DVD is perfect. Good remastering. The only language offered is italian, but that's fine with the english subtitles. Unfortunately I did not purchase the No Shame-version. This edition has no extras, except a trailer.
The story is plausible; Woman falls for a younger guy while her fiancee is in jail. The sex scenes are hot, and indeed, one is actually explicit.
However the end is lacking. It leaves you with the question: Is that all?
It is worth watching, at least once
There is no story. Boy and girl see each other, and without preliminaries hit the sack. We see boy & girl here, there, in the sack, here, there, in the sack, etc. Occasionally we get a shot of some of the other characters.
Because of the lack of dynamics, the film is not effective, either as drama or as eroticism. Ironically, "The Summer of '42" was much more erotic even without any nudity (which would have helped).
The vaulted sex scenes are three in number, chest and shoulders, and they last about three minutes each. The much-touted fellatio scene is actually surprisingly good, more convincing than the "love" scenes.
There are also a few brief full-frontal scenes of the star, who has a gorgeous body (hence, the two star rating).
Bottom line: the only reason to see this movie is the nudity and the sex. But there are many better movies for that. So, only if you need the pretentiousness in order to permit yourself to see a sex movie should you see this.
Check out the film's last scene: He's there being examined by his professors, and she's there watching him in a growing state of emotion. Watch the expressions on her face (God, what a performance!) and you'll see that she realizes just how much she'll lose by falling in love with this young man but, simulataneously, just how powerless she is to resist the passion, love, lust, self-destruction. I love this film.
