Description: This movie reflects the double standard that existed for adulterous married men and women in turn of-the-20th-century Italy. Prince Tullio Hermil is an aristocrat who has a beautiful, quiet, socialite wife, Giuliana (Antonnelli,) with whom he was once in love, and a beautiful mistress, Countess Teresa Raffo (O’Niell,) with whom he is in love. Tulio is candid with his wife about his relationship with Raffo. Guliana accepts that reality. Just as Tullio and Giuliana are beginning to become close again, he learns that Giuliana, too, had an affair and is pregnant. Questioning whether the child is his and unable to bear the thought that Giuliana has been unfaithful to him, he takes extreme measures, becoming a monster.
