Pinhole Movie Reviews

The Libertine / La Matriarca by tincolor

Catherine Spaak is a recently widowed young woman who is surprised to discover that her husband secretly owned a second apartment he used for acting out his wildest sexual fantasies. There’s definitely nothing wholesome about this movie, but it’s also not particularly in-your-face about its more sordid details. Perhaps the creators of this film wanted to incite social change by creating a character that flew in the face of gender norms, or perhaps they just wanted to make a titilating film, I don’t really know, but I wouldn’t say they succeeded in either regard. Not a whole lot of reason to watch this film unless you are really into Italian 60s cinema. Watchable.
