Man-Eater
Reminiscent of Catherine Breillat's similarly explicit Romance (1999), this erotic thriller is a portrait of a mysterious woman with a voracious sexual appetite. Guila (newcomer Loredana Cannata) picks up the young Valerio (Arturo Paglia) for a one-night stand. After a round of lovemaking and midnight skinny-dipping in the ocean, she gives him a false name and number. In spite of this, the utterly smitten Valerio tries to hunt down his dream girl. In the process, he learns of her multiple identities and multiple sexual exploits. La donna lupo was screened at the 1999 Toronto Film Festival.
