Nudo di donna, Manfredi, 1981

A wife, dismayed by her husband's indifference, masquerades as an escort and becomes his glamorous mistress. This all takes place during the enchanting Carnevale in Venezia. The truth is difficult to find during this Carnevale period when everyone is disguised. This film leaves you to question what we keep hidden to ourselves versus what we show others.
