义母小池美绘子电影 Another brilliant giallo thriller from director Francesco Barilli, whose TH义母E PERFUME OF THE LADY IN BLACK was one of the genres most haunting and original films. This Italian-Spanish follow-up is a bit muddled, but no less engrossing.Set 美绘子in a family hotel in Northern Italy in 1945, the film concerns Rosa (Leonora Fani), who helps her mother run the ho小池tel while awaiting her soldier fathers return from the front. In a Barilli film, nothing is as it seems, and before long Mom (who is sleeping with a traitor shes hidden in the attic) is murdered. Then poor Rosa is raped by two of the guests, who also are murdered, and while shes hiding the bodies she is forced into an orgy by all of the other guests. But before the guests get to far a mysterious man enters all shots the guests. Who is this mys义母terious man and what are his intentions for Rosa?义母Like all the best gialli, Pensione Paura completely dispe小池nses with logic early on, elevating weirdness to nearly operatic levels while absorbing the viewer in a 电影thick and spellbinding atmosphere of mounting dread. Francisco Rabal co-stars with Luc Merenda, Lidia Biondi, and Jose Maria Prada.
