What's Your Idea Of Justice... Have You Ever Thought About It?

Spurning the advances of a Mafia don's cruel nephew, a beautiful peasant girl is punished for upholding her family's honor by being abducted and robbed of her virginity. Rebuked by her own parents and incurring the wrath of her village, the girl reports her to the local police, shattering centuries-old traditions in her unyielding quest for justice.

Damiano Damiani's The Most Beautiful Wife marked the film debut of gorgeous Italian actress Ornella Muti (The Nuns Of St. Archangel, Flash Gordon) and also features a strong performance by Alessio Orano (Lisa And The Devil, The Killer Must Kill Again). Filmed on location in Sicily, this adult drama anticipates both The Godfather and Prizzi's Honor, and is based on a true police case that changed the course of Italian law during the 1960s. Shot by giallo specialist Franco Di Giacomo (Four Flies On Grey Velvet, Who Saw Her Die?~~), this gritty and hard-hitting film also benefits from one of the great, unheralded Euro-Cult scores of Ennio Morricone.
