Penombra (1987)

One more end of career Paola Senatore flick. She made it almost with Maladonna and Malombra.

In late 18th century, the life, loves and lies of a decadent aristicratic lady, whose beauty and heat will have no limits on her persuit of sexual satisfaction.

If you see her other films from the period, I have pretty much of an idea of what you are going to find here. Unshamefull nudity, female masturbation, bits of lesbianism and so on. Around mid 80’s sweet Senatore made her only foray into porn, Arduino Sacco’s Non stop sempre buio in sala (1985).

When Senatore acted in Non stop, she was pregnant, drug addicted (heroin) and, above all, without money (all spent for the heroin). For this reason she accepted to make this hard-core film (this will be her only one of this kind, and her last one at all). But she was arrested facing the accuse to smuggle heroin, remaining in prison for almost one year. It’s funny if you think that only the year before, she still played in some interesting Italian soft-core Italian movies like MALOMBRA (1983), which was a big hit in Italy at that time, from the Antonio Fogazzaro’s novel with same name, directed by Bruno Gaburro (whom, according Senatore, directed all the hard-core sequences starring her, even if, the director never confirmed). Gaburro also directed Maladonna, and this Penombra.
