Fave Director Pasquale Fanetti (Frank Di Niro) delivers a Sleaze Thriller
Italian Title: DELITTI
A LUCE ROSSA [Crimes in a Red Light]
also known as SEX CRIMES and INTIMATE CRIMES and RED
Pasquale Fanetti (as Emanuele Glisenti) [aka Frank Di Niro]
starring: Gabriella Barbuti · Gianluigi (Jimmy) Ghione ·
Vassili Karis · Sara Cosmi · Maurice Poli · Ronald
Industrialist Paolo Henkel is married to business partner Claudia Ferrari.
Yet he's also having an affair with Valeria, a much younger sex kitten.
Paolo devises a scheme - with the help of bodyguard Joe Bene - to kill
Claudia so he can be with his girlfriend permanently. But, nothing goes
as planned. Paolo discovers he shouldn't trust Valeria, while his wife
gets involved with the bodyguard and they start plotting Paolo's murder.
Fanetti (better known by his Frank De Niro pseudonym) directed this film
under the Emanuele Glisenti alias. And, as such, it represents
an obvious attempt to distance himself from his former sexploitation venue.
But, he simply can't help himself. Despite the solid 'erotic thriller'
plot-points, Mr Fanetti can't stay away from excessive sleaze. While this
film is an intricately constructed tale of treachery and mistrust, it
inadvertently wallows in gratuitous excess. Pasquale was most prolific
in the late '80s/early '90s with GAMES
OF DESIRE, LADY
OF PASSION, WOMAN
FOR ALL, TELEPHONE
SEX & THE INVISIBLE MAN, et al. He made only one more
film, LYCATROPUS, before retiring in 2007.
