Niro (Pasquale Fanetti)

De Niro (pseudonym for Pasquale Fanetti) is probably the sleaziest of
all the Italian filmmakers. He has the shameless ability to linger over
each scene with a leering intensity unparalleled in erotic cinema.
is a wicked variation of D H Lawrence's notorious "Lady Chatterley's
Lover" tale. In the original story, Ms Chatterley's disabled husband
gave her permission to bed an occasional lover because he deeply loved
her and - due to his crippled condition - was unable to satisfy her.
This time, he's disabled but still sexually functioning and she's essentially
a slut. Her name is Joelle and she lives in luxury with her loving
husband (aging Spaghetti Western hero Anthony Steffen in his final film)
but she is secretly sexually involved with her husband's best friend
who harbors a very dark secret and wishes to subject Ms Chatterley to
an ugly S&M fantasy.
