Assunta has guy problems. Her ex can't accept that he's been dumped, so he still skulks around flashing sexy poses (that sometimes hit the mark with Assunta). Her fiance works out of town and is tormented by suspicions, jealousy, and violent impulses - yet she remains attached to him. Clearly trouble lurks, yet Assunta's responses to her troubles are not melodramatic but enigmatic - as if helplessly driven to a cursed destiny. In short, this one's for noir fans.
