Venice: Roberta (Emily Crawford) is an attractive professor of some sort or other who is so used to supressing her sexuality it almost hurts.

Lorenzo (Gualberto Parmeggiani) is an artist who's promiscuous, open-minded, but nbot the least bit romantic, and actually a bit sleazy.

When the two of them meet, they almost immediately hate one another - but before you know it, they go out on a date that ends with him taking her to a swinger club, and her storming out of the place once she realizes what he has gotten her into ... and yet, she meets him again the very next evening, and soon the two land in bed together and become a couple. Yet their relationship is not like any other, because he's a very domineering man who likes to put her into comprimising situations, and under his guidance, she finds her submissive side and opens up sexually.

Then though Lorenzo invites another woman over to have sex with the two of them, but seeing Lorenzo with anothger woman proves to be too much for Roberta and she makes a hasty escape. Yet she can't let go off Lorenzo, or is it the memory of him that won't let go of her. Anyways, the very next evening, she visits the swinger club from the beginning of the movie once more to have sex with a random stranger. When Lorenzo catches them, he is overcome by jealousy - and before the evening is over, she ends up back in his bed. The next morning though, she decides to break up with Lorenzo and leaves rather than continue this path of self-destruction ...


By and large, Venetian Caprice is a remake of the 1980's sex smashhit 9 1/2 Weeks - an unofficial remake of course -, with some scenes of that movie repeated shot for shot. Now I have to admit I didn't like 9 1/2 Weeks to begin with, so I don't know whether I'm the right man to review this film at hand - however, at least in some ways, Venetian Caprice manages to replicate 9 1/2 Weeks' approach to sexuality, as it presents sex in a totally antiseptic, design-heavy and emotionfree way, and it turns a fascinating master-slave relationship into nothing more than a series of impersonal sexual vignettes.

'What I want to say in a nutshell: You might like this one if you liked the earlier film, if you weren's into 9 1/2 Weeks to begin with, youo probably shouldn't bother, and whether Venetian Caprice of 9 1/2 Weeks is the better film is hard to determine, even, as, if nothing else, Mattei's new film is at least less pretentious than the earlier movie ...
