Cinema: Weak End

THE SUNDAY WOMAN

Directed by LUIGI COMENCINI

Screenplay by AGENORE INCROCCI and FURIO SCARPELLI

An aging, disreputable and thoroughly disagreeable architect is done in, bludgeoned to death with a stone phallus. Almost everyone questioned by Inspector Santamaria (Marcello Mastroianni) has a fair disposition for murder and a shaky alibi. Nobody liked the recently deceased much, but snobbism is an unpersuasive reason for murder. The inspector, then, must search out not only a culprit but a motive.

The Sunday Woman is a double-barreled puzzle, about which one does not know whodunit and one does not care either....
