This is one heck of a bleak giallo but it definitely makes a statement! After Police find what they believe to be the suicide of a young girl initially turns into a full blown murder investigation. Things get stranger when they find out that for her age of 15 she was extremely sexually experienced! A lot of the film is based upon Police procedure, but it's interesting and really all pulls together later. It has some nice deaths, some bizarre touches but the seriousness and darkness of the film really pull together nicely to make the situation feel tense. Apparently this is part of a trilogy from Massimo Dallamano starting with the brilliant "What Have They Done To Solange" which I like slightly better than this. Still I definitely have few complaints about this and I think anyone should be able to enjoy this film on it's own.

Availability:  On DVD (in the UK only)
