Il Frullo Del Passero Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P51588~Ornella Muti~ornellamuti]] plays a Kept Woman whose keeper has the bad taste to die. Silvana (Muti) attaches herself to another wealthy "patron," aging lothario Gabriele ([[Performer~P52872~Philippe Noiret~philippenoiret]]). His idea of sexual stimulation is to recall the highlights of his previous affairs, going into orgasmic ecstasies whenever uttering a seemingly non sequitur phrase like "The Sparrow's Fluttering" (which served as the English-language title for this film). Eventually, the relationship becomes shaky when Silvana finds a newer, younger lover ([[Performer~P137461~Nicola Farron~nicolafarron]]). Appearing in a key supporting role in Il Frullo Del Passero is [[Performer~P2828~Claudine Auger~claudineauger]], who 24 years earlier played [[Performer~P10646~Sean Connery~seanconnery]]'s leading lady in the James Bond opus [[Feature~V49850~Thunderball~thunderball]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
