A new one every day. An Italian high school student becomes infatuated with a woman he sees outside his class window. This movie's a bit like 'The Brown Bunny'. The sex scene is so notorious that the rest of the film seems pointless. As a colorful and sexy film, "Diavolo in corpo" is definitely nice to look at. But it's far from convincing when it comes to creating an intriguing universe; Bellocchio sets up the plot in an exciting way, but consequentally fails to merge sex and politics to make the film and its characters become interesting objects. It's never a must-see as "I pugni in tasca", though the visual qualities still makes it seeworthy. For a better experience on MUBI, update your browser.
