Storyline

Young Alvise, the only heir of a wealthy industrialist thinks he is paralyzed. He receives treatment for his psychological problem. His father leaves him for a few days in the care of Lea, Alvise's mother's sister. She is a beautiful psychiatrist and tries to heal him her psychopathic, impotent nephew. Alvise becomes infatuated with her and she also reciprocates gradually. She breaks off her relationship with Stefano to be with her nephew. Alvise promises to make love to Lea if she plays with him and beats him at any of the games. She is intelligent, youthful, full of style and charm, becomes a toy in the hands of the boy and indulges in the murky game. They play a number of games leading to the ultimate game of euthanasia.

Erotic soft!
12 October 2018 | by rodrig58See all my reviews

Strange like all the films with Lou Castel. He played only annoying, irritating characters like in "Fists in the Pocket" and "A bullet for the general", again in this "Grazie zia". Lisa Gastoni is gorgeous. Gabriele Ferzetti is the same as in almost all his movies. The first film directed by Salvatore Samperi, who would do many more productions with erotic subject. The music by Ennio Morricone is great.
