Notte d'estate con profilo greco, occhi a mandorla e odore di basilico (Summer Night)
Mariangela Melato plays a female industrialist subjected to a kidnapping. Tired of watching her "class" being persecuted, Melato wreaks vengeance by abducting the head kidnapper, Sicilian bandit Michele Placido. She forces the gang to pony up $100,000, but the crooks manage to have the last laugh. On the other hand, Melato does enjoy an enforced tryst with the handsome, helpless Placido. This very characteristic Lina Wertmuller film was originally released in the US as Summer Night with Greek Profile, Almond Eyes and Scent of Basil. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As gentle and soothing as a summer wind, this evening in the heat of political and physical passion is an affair to enjoy. Remembering it may be another matter all togethe"
