This erotic drama about the incestuous relationship of a mother and daughter is based on the autobiography of Italian theater actress Piera Degli Esposti, though it focuses more on her mother Eugenia (Hanna Schygulla, who won the Best Actress award at Cannes for this film.) The liberated Eugenia and her spaced-out husband (Marcello Mastroianni) –a Communist professor– live in a small provincial town, where Eugenia is noticed as she zooms around on her bicycle and chats up strangers at the train station. While still no more than a grown child, Piera –in tight dresses– goes with her mother for a threesome when she engages in sexual relations with other men and subsequently suffers both from poor health and the lack of a normal home. The shadow of the future already clouds the household when Eugenia is committed again and again to the psychiatric clinic. By the time Piera has become an adult (and is played by Mrs. Huppert), both of her parents are in separate mental hospitals –and both (even the father) are still sexually eccentric, to say the least.
