Seduced and Abandoned
Sedotta e Abbandonata | Pietro Germi, 1963
Italy | Italian | 122 minutes

A frenetic series of tragicomic machinations possible only in a Sicilian society obsessed with macho mores follow hard upon the discovery that Agnese (Stefania Sandrelli), an underage girl, is pregnant-by her sister’s fiancé Peppino (Aldo Puglisi). A broken engagement, an emergency wedding, attempted murder, jail, mock kidnapping, social ridicule—all this and more must be endured by patriarch Ascalone (Saro Urzi) before the holy state of matrimony redresses an ever-widening social crisis.
