One evening, Paolo, a down-on-his-luck piano player in a bar, meets the perfect woman, the radiant and beautiful Francesca. They begin an intense love affair, until one day, Francesca decides to leave. The Flesh, a work from Ferreri’s mature period, is his last romantic masterpiece and perhaps the most moving of his essays about mad love. Starring Italian actor Sergio Castellitto and the bewitching, porcelain-skinned Francesca Dellera, this film is an astonishing drama about all-consuming passion, religion, and trust.
