Forgive Me Father For I Have Sinned
How do Catholics enjoy sex when the always glowing threat of sin is bestowed upon them by God's rightful sword? Well, for starters you could seek out the advice of your local priest and try to work out issues that are obviously at odds like pleasure and guilt. A forgotten but very accurate portrait of mid-seventies Italy, the film captures some of the most sensitive problems that had to be faced by Catholic women like prenuptial intercourse, open weddings and homosexuality. Interlaced with real comments by priests, psychologists, sexologists, social workers, and intellectuals, Sex Advice tells the story of the difficult path Italians had to walk to achieve sexual freedom. Music by Ennio Morricone.
