Luca Manzi is a fourteen year old boy while the Northern Italy Republic of Salò is governed by the Fascists. Luca becomes a partisan but after the end of the war he is disappointed because things don’t seem to have changed as he had hoped and he decides to let himself die. But he is saved by Edith who tries to introduce him to sex. When suddenly Edith, who was also the lover of luca’s father, dies of a heart attack, Luca is sick again. This time he is saved by Angela, his nurse, who sells herself to buy the remedy to cure him. Angela becames Luca’s lover when his parents go to Rome and when they come back Luca decides to leave them despising their lives.

User review:

The argument touches irritating topics (very irritating to some): hypocrisy of the Italian upper class who survive her beloved fascism and even the hated partisans and always enjoys a good economic situation, some collaborationist Jews!, the conformism of the communists, sexual relations between an adolescent and adult women … but as always, Pietrangeli “forgets” the Vatican factor… (self censure?). Anyway, the film seems sabotaged: at least in the copy that Youtube provides, can hardly be seen clearly some images, the soundtrack is awful and at times the music prevents follow the dialogue. However, you should look this intelligent film. But one must denounce these acts of sabotage against certain films (since this is not the only one).
