In a prototypical erotic drama scenario, every member of an upscale Milan family — including Laura Betti, named Best Actress at the Venice Film Festival — falls prey to handsome stranger Terence Stamp’s ministrations, sexual and otherwise. Scripting minimal dialogue for the characters, queer auteur Pasolini avails himself of Ennio Morricone’s score and a committed cast including frequent star Ninetto Davoli and Anne Wiazemsky (Au hasard Balthazar); the erotic-drama scenario has since been adapted both faithfully and freely with everyone from Sandra Bernhard to David Cross as the focal point.
