The Story of Piera

A Feature film by Marco Ferreri

Produced by Sara Films, Faso Film s.r.l., T Films

Release in France : 18/05/1983

    Synopsis

    Piera (Isabelle Huppert) is a young woman who grows up under the parentage of two extremely original overseers : both her mother (Hanna Schygulla) and father (Marcello Mastoianni) have incestuous relations with her before they are committed to insane asylums.
    Based on a semi-autobiographical synopsis by actress Piera Degli Esposti, the film focuses mainly on Piera's viewpoint of her mother, as she watches her navigate the world with both her charismatic charma and her damaged sense of sexual freedom.
