A Swedish actor (Erland Josephson), flashbacks and memories like in Wild Straberries, the golden colors of the cinematography, all recall to Ingmar Bergman. But with a big difference, sexual orientation.
This film was banned to minor of 18 years old (as we can see on the Italian film poster), now, Berlusconi's company Medusa has released the film on DVD and changed the Age, it's banned to minor of 14 years old: may be it's too queer for Italian homophobics, I don't know. May be it's what Putin will call "gay propaganda".
Mariangela Melato offers the only nude scene of her I know.
Mariangela Melato is a lesbian, she is love with the pretty and blonde Eleonora Giorgi
Yes, we've got a male gay couple. Two gay couples in a film !
Even the young gay tries something with the lesbian
But remember, it's a very Bergman picture, it's not John Waters.
Older gay man memories: a trip to his childhood, we know his best friend (red hair), his first love. They talk about masturbation, nudity in art (there were no porn in the past), even he smells his friend's costume. Too much queer for Italians.
The hate to the parents, a lesbian flashback
Mariangela Melato's mother is also played by her in other flashback
In a restaurant, in a forest, we discover the old friend, a father now.
