236 SEDUCTION [La Seduzione] (1973) Fernando Di Leo's 'Lolita'
236 SEDUCTION [La Seduzione] (1973) Fernando Di Leo\'s \'Lolita\'

Fernando Di Leo Directs Poignant 'Lolita' Erotic Scorcher

Original Euro Title: La Seduzione (The Seduction)

director: Fernando Di Leo
starring: Lisa Gastoni Marice Ronet Jenny Tamburi Pino Caruso Graziella Galvani Barbara Marzano

After 15 years, Giuseppe returns to his hometown in Sicily after successfully working as a journalist in Paris. He promptly rekindles a love affair with ex-girlfiend Caterina, now a widow with a teenage daughter named Graziella. Before long, Giuseppe begins to notice Graziella's coy flirtations and soon finds himself seducing the child. Of course, that is the begin of disaster for everyone involved.

The film is beautifully photographed by Di Leo's usual cinematographer Franco Villa and is extremely well-acted by the three main cast members (the late Marice Ronet especially manages to induce empathy for a character who really deserves none). But the real proficiency lies in Fernando Di Leo's virtuosity, his flare for both artistry and exploitation within the Lolita story. Mr Di Leo began his career as a scriptwriter for many high profile Spaghetti Westerns (including FISTFUL OF DOLLARS, FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, RETURN OF RINGO, JOHNNY YUMA, et al), but interestingly, once he got the opportunity to direct, he jumped into Crime movies (i.e., SHOOT FIRST DIE LATER) and the occasional horror film (SLAUGHTER HOTEL: Beast Kills in Cold Blood). Fernando officially retired in 1985 after the release of his film KILLER VS KILLERS. He died from a stroke in December 2003 at age 71.

An Italian film with English subtitles; widescreen format (16:9), uncut (99 minutes), DVD encoded for ALL REGION NTSC WORLD FORMAT. Extras include theatrical trailers
