Così dolce...così perversa (So Sweet...So Perverse)
The second of the four gialli Lenzi made with Caroll Baker between 1969 and 1972. Like the other three, Così dolce...così perversa is a great thriller. Set in Paris and starring Caroll Baker, Jean-Louis Trintignant, Erika Blanc and Horst Frank, the film features an excellent soundtrack by Riz Ortolani. The film will receive an Italian DVD release in early april, but unfortunately there are no english options on the disc. A real shame, but I've not given up hope that we might see a boxset with all the Lenzi/Baker gialli someday.
