Movie filmed in Sciacca Sicily

Postby jscaduto » 08 Aug 2007, 12:34

This movie was recomended by a friend who is a film buff. It was filmed in Sciacca Sicily in the 1960's. Seduced and Abandoned by Pietro Germi.
It is about a girl who is seduced by her sisters fiance, and what occurs in a small italian village surrounding the incident, with the family and the girls honor now in question. It is very dark comedy.
I bought it because of the Sciacca connection. My family is from there and there is a couple of scenes filmed in and around the church where my grandmother was baptised.
It is in Italian with english subtitles. I ordered from my local Borders Bookstore. I enjoyed it.

Thanks for recommending this movie. I can't wait to see it. Always love a good movie...especially in the fall so I get all the ones I want to see during the summer and watch them when the weather changes.
