The Visitor, La Visita
Thirty-something stunning beauty Pina (Sandra Milo) takes out an ad in the personal column hoping to find a man to take her away from the tiny Italian village where she lives. For months now she has been trying to find the right one – a man with a solid career, a family in mind, and plenty of stamina. Adolfo (Francois Perier) lives in Rome running a profitable business. Looking to share his life with that special person willing to raise a family Adolfo replies to Pina’s ad. The couple arrange to meet in the village where Pina lives. Incorporating flashbacks that highlight Pina’s and Adolfo’s lives, the complexity of the characters are slowly revelaed and when the two finally meet Pina quickly concludes that Adolfo is the one. He appears noble, cultured, and ready for a serious commitment – Pina can hardly believe her luck!

"Despite of the fact that La Visita is an outrageously funny film with plenty of zesty scenes its core is disturbingly serious. Antonio Pietrangeli's heavy criticism on traditional Italian themes such as family and morality often borders the biting language of Pasolini."


"Thanks to Raro Video, here’s another finely detailed film by the overlooked Italian director Antonio Pietrangeli, whose lucid, unsettling comedy “Adua and Her Friends” was released by Raro last year."
