Summer Affair / Il sole nella pelle (1971)

1.5 out of 5

In this shamelessly pitched at the Italian teen counterculture market take on The Blue Lagoon a barely legal Ornella Muti plays Lisa, the daughter of a rich industrialist. She meets a guitar playing hippy pothead portrayed by her one time real life husband Alessio Orano, runs away with him to the family beach house, steals a boat and sails off to a deserted island where the couple play house and doctors and nurses in a cave while the police are in hot pursuit.

Given that signorina Muti was born in March of 1955 the beholding of her already ample and publicly displayed norks while watching this may land the viewer in a bit of bother with the beak in some territories.
