1991 Domenica specialmente, La …. Unknown
(Especially on Sunday)
Three (international version four) very odd relationships provide the basis for this thought-provoking Italian anthology that is overseen by director Bernardo Bertolucci. The first tale, “The Blue Dog” centers on a barber who becomes the fixation of a mysteriously devoted dog with an unusual blue spot upon his head. In “Especially on Sunday,” a traveler encounters a woman and a man beside a river and offers them a ride. The woman is quite the coquette and she chattily explains that she is visiting her companion, who suffers from a debilitating breakdown. They all stop for lunch and her friend begins telling them a disturbing, surreal tale. The third tale “Snow on the Fire,” features a repentant woman who confesses a dark secret to the town priest. It seems the old woman has grown addicted to watching her son make passionate love to his new bride, who knows that she is watching and seems to enjoy it all the more. In the international edition there is a fourth segment titled “Wooden Churches” where a man walks through the city witnessing carnal sins performed all around him and in the end he swims to the three wooden churches that come from the sea.
Note from mima:
I don’t think Patricia ever made the final cut if she ever actually starred in it, after watching the movie in international format with the all four short stories, I did not see her in it and I don’t think I blink that much to miss her part completely. She is also not listed in the credits for any of the segments so I think this is just a rumored project. If you have seen the film and have spotted her in it please let us know.
