This is an auld Italian film about a naive and strange girl.A man turns up at her house and gives her mum a load of money to essentially buy the daughter.This isn’t the first time he’s done it,he bought her sister before her but she died so naturally he comes back for another.The guy is a travelling performer and lives day to day on the road driving a sort of tuk-tuk.The young girl kind of falls for the guy but he couldn’t give two fucks about her and he whores himself whenever he can.It’s a good story and has quiet a few funny bits.All put together well ,audio is a wee bit off in parts,like when they had to over dub singing tracks or more lines.
