Nostra Signora Dei Turchi Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Independent filmmaker [[Performer~P207043~Carmelo Bene~carmelobene]] makes his debut in this feature that concerns the murder of the Saracens in the city of Otranto centuries ago. Our Lady appears at various time in the film, symbolic of the carnal desires and spiritual dreams of all men. Flashbacks and avant garde cinematic techniques provide passages of erotica and black humor on occasion. The story was taken from Bene's own novel as the author oversees all aspects of writing, production and direction in this experimental and provocative film. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi
