Senatore is an out-of-control Decadent Woman

Gaburro written & cinematography
by: Pasquale Fanetti (as Frank Di Niro)
starring Paola Senatore · Maurice Poli · Dan Stephen ·
Claudia Cavalcanti · Maurizio Boni · Paola Corazzi
in the late 19th Century, here is the story of a handsome rogue named
Alacio who seduces and brutalizes Maria, the daughter of rich nobility.
They 'rescue' her from the brute and arrange a marriage to Count Osvaldo
Raininger from a nearby domain. However Osvaldo is a stoic conservative
man who cannot understand [nor tolerate] his wife's preoccupation with
the seedier, lusty side of life. She secretly begins seeing Alacio when
her husband goes away on business. She is soon totally under his perverse
power, obeying his every command. Then, when her husband meets a newcomer
to the village, a woman named Claudia, things become very complicated.
similar to the Andera Bianchi/Pasquale Fanetti historic sex melodrama
OF ANGELA, this one wallows in the same lurid landscape. Perhaps
it's not surprising since notorious sleaze-meiser Pasquale Fanetti (alias
Frank Di Niro) was the man behind the camera for both projects [aptly
explaining the film's obsession with naked female bottoms in close-up
from behind, a mania which distinguishes most Fanetti movies from TOP
MODEL 2 to THREE
DAYS OF LOVE].
Senatore, an Italian brunette/redhead averaged two films a year between
1972-87. She was best known for EATEN
ALIVE BY CANNIBALS and LIKE
RABID DOGS. She also made many sex scorchers like Joe D'Amato's
IN AMERICA, IMAGES
IN THE CONVENT, WOMEN
IN CELL BLOCK 7, et al. Her career ended abruptly in
1987 when she was arrested for possession and trafficking of drugs.
